Many business leaders tell us that they have always tried to be engaged with local schools; however, the academy framework makes that engagement much easier and more meaningful for their employees. By having a dedicated point of contact (the academy coach), who facilitates the planning of engagement opportunities, helps streamline communication and prepare the business partner for what to expect. This creates a much more enjoyable experience for participating businesses.

Business partners also receive:

Access to a new pipeline of future employees – before they graduate from high school. Our academy high schools have more than 10,000 students currently enrolled.

Increased employee retention and satisfaction due to the meaningful engagement and volunteer opportunities that employees are able to participate in.

Recognition on the Academy of Central Arkansas website, school newsletters and other means of communication of your investment in building the future of our community and our workforce.

A summary of your organization’s involvement that can be shared with your stakeholders.

Increased prosperity for all in our communities by making our region an even greater place to live, learn and work.
