2018 was a big year for America Succeeds.

America Succeeds was founded in 2012 with a vision of building an education system that prepares every student to succeed in the competitive global economy and contribute to their local community.

Over the past six years, we have helped support a network of non-profit, non-partisan affiliate partners who engage business leaders as education champions. Today, the network represents more than 5.34 million K-12 students and 724 business leaders across seven states.

Together, they are making incredible progress in improving public education and bringing our vision to life – progress that we are excited to share in America Succeeds’ first-ever Annual Report.
