Through a rigorous, hands-on exploration of business design, entrepreneurship, design thinking, leadership and justice, young people acquire the skills and mindsets required to lead, own and operate organizations and create wealth for their families and communities.

We create wealth for our students and their families.

We set students up for long-term success by helping close the wealth gap. For example, starting in fourth grade, each student will have a 529 account set up with a distribution towards a personal college fund. In addition, students can earn up to $20k in a scholarship. These funds are distributed to Academy students to support them through college.

We make financial investments for social returns.

We invest in a diverse portfolio of commercial companies that share our vision and values and use the earned revenues to reinvest in young people. Our partner companies provide paid internships to our students in high school and college.
