Our Mission

Fueled by the belief that talent is ubiquitous, the Academy Group unlocks opportunity for young people from the nation’s most resilient communities to realize their full potential as economic, educational and social change agents.

Our Values

We’re betting on this generation to lead the nation toward a more prosperous and equitable future. Rooted in our values of excellence, determination and justice, we tap into the deep wells of overlooked talent that exist in our most resilient communities.

Our Young People

We aren’t the first to recognize that we live in a world where talent is abundant and dispersed, and where opportunity is often too scarce and concentrated.

This “opportunity gap” is felt acutely by young people from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups and those from low-income backgrounds.

We’re intentional about serving a diverse cadre of young people. A majority (95%) identify as Black and Latinx, and we’re proud to be creating pathways for students who need it most.
