Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning From the moment scholars join Success Academy in elementary school, we are committed to their success in college and in life. We tailor our engaging and rigorous approach across each school level to teach core knowledge and critical thinking and then develop the independence and self-advocacy skills scholars will need to excel.
