Eva Moskowitz is the founder and CEO of Success Academy Charter Schools in New York, which operates 46 charter schools. She also is a co-author of Mission Possible.
Eva grew up in the Harlem and graduated from Stuyvesant High School. She then completed her B.A. at the University of Pennsylvania and her Ph.D. in American History at Johns Hopkins.
During her early career, Eva Moskowitz taught at the University of Virginia from 1989-1990, at Vanderbilt University from 1992-1993, and at the City University of New York from 1994-1995. Moskowitz then chaired the faculty seminar in American Studies at Columbia University from 1996-1999. She also served as the director of the children’s literacy program ReadNet and taught civics at Prep for Prep.
In 2006, Moskowitz founded Success Academy Charter Schools. The organization’s dual mission is to build exceptional world-class public schools that prove children from all backgrounds can succeed in college and life; and advocate across the country to change public policies that prevent so many children from having access to opportunity.
In 2017, Success Academy launched the Education Institute to freely share the curriculum, tools, and resources that the organization has used and refined over the past decade with teachers across the country.
