Jan 04, 2023 • Views -

An accelerated pathway to school leadership at New York City's top-performing charter school.

Sponsored by Success Academy Charter Schools

Success Academy is the largest and highest-achieving network of public charter schools in New York City, enrolling over 20,000 primarily low-income black and Hispanic children in grades K-12 across 49 schools. Since our founding in 2006, we have continued to redefine what’s possible in public education. We have not just closed the achievement gap — we have reversed it. We are the fifth largest school district in New York, consistently ranking at the top of the state in math and reading and outperforming the most affluent suburban districts. For the past five years, 100% of our graduating seniors have been accepted to colleges, many to selective and highly selective institutions. 

Success Academy seeks excellent teachers who are excited and ready to join our Assistant Principal Fellowship Program. Assistant Principals will be trained and developed by the best educators in the country. In year 1, you will be trained to teach and be paid at a junior leadership level; Year 2 and 3, you will receive extensive leadership training to progress your career. Having successfully completed the Fellowship, you will be ready to become a Success Academy principal, leading the best elementary, middle, and high schools in the country. 

Success Academy welcomes candidates from all backgrounds who understand our excellence bar and the urgency of the work we do and are looking for a career where they can swiftly build a professional skill set and extensive leadership abilities while being challenged, supported, and valued.
