The 2016 – 2017 school year is off to a great start at the Success Academy.
Staff and students alike have welcomed the new instructional year and continue to focus on teaching and learning. We, as a school, will continue to focus on the safety of students as well as academic areas. We are committed to prepare our students for the ever-changing world they will meet after leaving the Success Academy.
You will continue to hear our Core Values: “RESPECT”, “COMMITMENT”, and “LEADERSHIP”. Succinctly stated, we will continue to challenge our students academically in ALL areas that are relevant in the 21st Century.

We personalize our engaging and rigorous approach across each grade level to teach core knowledge and critical thinking and then develop the independence and self-advocacy skills scholars will need to SUCCEED!
If any member of the Success Academy staff or I can assist you or your student, please do not hesitate to call upon us. I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you at school. I hope you and your family members have a terrific year!
