Eva Moskowitz

Eva Moskowitz is the Founder and CEO of the Success Academy Charter Schools, a former New York City Council member, and co-author of Mission Possible.

Eva Moskowitz founded Success Academy Charter Schools in 2006 to tackle the monumental crisis in public education in the most prominent city in the United States. Over the past 11 years, Success Academy has become the fastest-growing, highest-performing network of public charter schools in New York City. A longtime Harlem resident and mother of three, Eva began her leadership in education reform with her service as a member of the New York City Council. As chair of the Council’s Education Committee, she visited hundreds of city schools and was known for her investigative hearings. Success Academy’s distinctive school design, effective teaching practice, and robust curriculum grew out of those experiences, as did Eva’s impassioned advocacy for national reform. Success Academy currently operates 46 schools and employs hundreds of teachers and other professionals.
