NEW YORK: Success Academy Charter Schools admission rate is only 20%, lower than NYU

Harlem Success AcademyThe network of 24 schools received 14,485 applications for only 2,870 spots this fall, Success Academy announced Friday. The application rate was especially high at Bronx and Harlem charter schools.

Kids have a better shot at being admitted to NYU than landing a coveted seat in the city’s most popular charter school network.

Success Academy Charter Schools was inundated with 14,485 applications for only 2,870 spots this fall, meaning kids have only a 20% chance of being admitted.

To put that in perspective, the admission rate at New York University last year was 30%.

In 2013, 12,200 applicants applied for 2,266 spots.

The 24-school network made the announcement Friday, noting there were 17 applications for every open seat at its Bronx schools, and 21 applications per open seat for Success Academy Harlem 4.

“On the one hand, it’s incredibly gratifying to see the demand, but it’s also heartbreaking that we can’t make a dent in the wait list,” said CEO Eva Moskowitz.
