Success Academy Charter Schools (SACS), originally Harlem Success Academy, is a charter school operator of 22 schools in New York City. Eva Moskowitz, a former city council member for the Upper East Side, is its founder.
In February 2014, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio decided to stop the city's former policy of providing free space in public school buildings to private charter schools, and to evict those schools, including three in the Success Academy Charter Schools network, already in those buildings. The decision was reversed in April after New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo stepped into the controversy. The city ended up finding space for three Success Academy schools.
