Success Academy


The Success Academy network in Minnesota operates three schools - two elementary schools and one middle school - serving a total of 352 students. These schools are predominantly attended by African American students from low-income backgrounds, with free/reduced lunch rates ranging from 90.7% to 99.4%.

Academically, the Success Academy schools are struggling, with significantly lower test scores compared to the state averages across all subjects and grade levels. For example, the 6th grade Math proficiency rates at Success Academy Bloomington Middle and Success Academy Saint Cloud were 0% and 5.88%, respectively, compared to the Minnesota average of 39.65%. The highest proficiency rate was 52.17% in 3rd grade Math at Success Academy Bloomington Elementary, but this was still well below the state average of 59.1%.

According to the SchoolDigger rankings, all three Success Academy schools are ranked in the bottom half of their respective school types in Minnesota, with 1 out of 5 stars. Success Academy Bloomington Middle is ranked 434 out of 529 Minnesota middle schools, while the two elementary schools are ranked 686 and 760 out of 845 Minnesota elementary schools.
