Over the next decade, our network will grow to 40 schools that provide a phenomenal K-8 public education to NYC school children. Our dual mission is to:

  1. Offer children in New York City an exceptional public education that prepares them to succeed in college and life.

  • Coordinating with our content experts and consultants on training programs and support for fellows

The ideal candidate for this position must have a Bachelor’s Degree and a high level of professionalism and enthusiasm. The ideal candidate will have 2-3 years of previous work experience.


The candidate must demonstrate competency in the following areas:

  • Organization. Keeps track of projects and deadlines.
  • Problem-solving. Approaches challenges in creative ways and finds thoughtful solutions.
  • Oral and written communication. Comfort with public speaking, addressing a variety of audiences with a knowledgeable and friendly demeanor. Audiences include school staff, parents, students and partners.

In addition, the following characteristics are required to be successful on this team:

About Success Academy Charter Schools

Success Academies are free, high-performing public charter schools serving scholars in Kindergarten through 6th grade (and soon 7th and 8th grade as well). Our schools are founded on a simple premise: Every child can achieve success when they have access to a high-quality, free public education. Children enter our schools through a random lottery - but after they walk through our doors, nothing is left to chance.
