Become a Partner

What does it mean to be an Academy Partner?

A critical component of this educational transformation is business partner engagement. Academy Partners can come in many forms, but they all must have one thing in common — the desire to share their time, talent and expertise with our scholars.

While there is no financial requirement for your organization to become a partner, you must commit to a set amount of engagements with each partnering school per year.

Ways to Engage:

  • Provide Guest Speakers
  • Participate in Career Expo
  • Conduct Mock Interviews
  • Host Industry Tours
  • Become a Career Mentor
  • Provide Job Shadowing Experiences
  • Participate in Project-Based Learning Activities
  • Provide Certification and/or Curriculum Advice
  • Host Student Interns
  • Serve on the School’s Academy Advisory Board
  • Corporate Giving (Financial, Equipment, etc.)

Benefits for Your Business

  • 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.
