Eva Moskowitz is the principal founder and Chief Executive Officer of Success Academy Charter Schools. Hers is one of the best performing charter schools in new york city. The foundation of this prolific institution was motivated by her desire to challenge the commonly held belief that children from poor, minority backgrounds cannot achieve the highest levels of academic excellence. Since the first Success Academy was opened in Harlem in 2006, she has been a leading frontier in education reforms. The immense success of these schools has seen her provide the much-needed alternative to chronically underperforming schools to parents and help a large number of inner-city children realize their full academic potential.
Recently, the proliferate Success Academy charter school network won an illustrious $250,000 grant which will be used to construct a new institute. The grant funds will also be used to provide necessary support to aid college readiness programs for the charter’s students.
Despite the rich financial support, Moskowitz values the award and reckons that it is a paramount recognition of the exemplary work the charter has done with underprivileged kids. On June 14, 2017, Moskowitz is expected to announce the inauguration of the Success Academy Education Institute, a new project that is designed to propagate the charter network’s unique tricks of trade. Needless to say, the creation of this project is not related to the grant prize. The first task of the institute will be to release the reading curriculum used by Success Academy to educators on a digital platform that will be free to access.
