Your job is to foster a love of history and current events in your students through dynamic, inquiry-based instruction.

This will be a compelling intellectual and educational adventure that will transform you as a person and while doing so you will impact hundreds of students’ lives.

At Success Academy, we are redefining what’s possible in public education. Since opening our first school in Harlem in 2006, we have swiftly grown to 41 high-performing schools, from Bed-Stuy to the Bronx, serving approximately 14,000 kids. We are scaling to 100 great schools serving 50,000 children across New York City, bringing transformational change here and across the country. We believe all children, regardless of zip code or family income, deserve the life-changing opportunities that a world-class education brings.

In our High School of the Liberal Arts, teachers and scholars are redefining the components and values of an excellent education, sculpting the future of our high school model. We provide our scholars with the skills and experiences necessary for them to not only be accepted into the college of their dreams, but graduate within four years. To achieve exceptional results for students, we hire the best, brightest, and most highly motivated adults we can find. We value excellence, celebrate diversity, and are relentlessly committed to improving ourselves and our work to enhance the lives of our scholars.
