THE STORY:

I am running the New York City marathon November 6, 2016. Inspired by the remarkable stories of Success Academy students and my mother, a school teacher for over 25 years and avid marathon runner completing 14 marathons, I am running in support of Success Academy Charter Schools. It will be my first marathon and a feat I have aspired to accomplish for several years.

Please donate in support of our cause and read more about and view the inspirational videos of Success Academy.

Success Academy Charter Schools:

Success Academy charter schools originated in Harlem in 2006. Today it is the largest and highest-performing free, public charter school network in New York City. Admission is open to all New York State children, including those with special needs and English language learners. Success Academy operates 41 schools serving 14,000 students in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens and the Bronx. Across the network, 76% of students are from low-income households; 8.5% are current and former English Language Learners, and 15% are current and former special needs students. About 93% of students are children of color.

The success of Success Academy:

  • For the eighth consecutive year, Success Academy Charter Schools have scored among the highest-performing schools in New York State.
  • Five of the top five schools in the state in math, and two of the top five schools in English, are Success Academy schools.
  • Among the 4,230 scholars who were age-eligible to take the tests, 94% were proficient in math and 82% proficient in ELA.
  • In both subjects, students with disabilities and English Language Learners at Success Academy schools not only surpassed their peers statewide, but also outperformed students without disabilities and native English speakers, respectively, across New York.
