At Success Academy, we believe that science should actively engage scholars in learning experiences that stimulate curiosity, inquiry, enjoyment, and a deep understanding of scientific concepts. This comes from instruction that goes beyond teaching science as a series of procedures and memorization of facts. Instead, it is our core mission that science education should prepare scholars to be confident critical thinkers.
