Success Academy BGC (5) (1).png

Success Academy at the Boys & Girls Club opened in August 2023 for Kindergarten through 5th grade students. The school uses a co-teaching model and curriculum emphasizing STEM, project-based learning, and a competency-based approach.


This innovative educational experience promotes success in the classroom and beyond. On Fridays, students take part in experiential learning throughout South Bend and surrounding areas, where students can begin exploring career ideas and interests within their city and community.


This approach helps students and Club kids alike connect what they learn to what they experience, making learning authentic, relevant, and meaningful in an enriching, empowering, and supportive environment.

Together, the Boys & Girls Clubs of St. Joseph County and Success Academy at the Boys & Girls Club will work to meet the needs of the kids we serve and the surrounding community.


We will prepare students for the future through career exploration and building life skills, providing access to technology and emphasizing critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaboration. We will promote diversity and inclusion in a welcoming and safe space, and encourage community engagement and service through new partnerships and opportunities.


Together, we will ensure that every child has the opportunity to succeed, and that great futures start here.
