Thank you for your interest in the Philadelphia Alumni (PA) Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi® Fraternity, Inc.’s Achievement Academy!

For the 2021-2022 program year, the Achievement Academy will meet on the 2nd Wednesday of each month during the academic year (November 2021 — May 2022) — including a kickoff retreat targeted for the afternoon of Saturday, October 23, 2021, in Philadelphia.  Sessions are intended to be in person for the 2021-2022 program year as well; however, this is subject to change depending on COVID cases/transmission rates in Philadelphia.

2021-2022 Application Period

Applications for the 2021-2022 program year are now being accepted; applications will be accepted until 11:59PM on Friday, September 10, 2021.  Eligibility requirements have changed due to the COVID-19 pandemic:

  • Students are required to be vaccinated to participate in the program. As we intend to meet in-person, this is the safest way for our students to gather.  This means that students must again be at least 12 years of age to participate in the program during the 2021-2022 year; full vaccination is required by September 29, 2021.
  • Only students previously part of the Achievement Academy are eligible to apply.  Due to social distancing guidelines and capacity restrictions at the Achievement Center, our threshold is limited for the 2021-2022 program year.  We have made the difficult decision to only admit students who were previously members of our program as a means to ensure that students already involved with our program are able to continue on their trajectory with us.
  • Parents/Guardians will not be able to stay in the Achievement Center during our sessions with students.  Again, due to social distancing guidelines and capacity restrictions, our available space is limited.  We are prioritizing the space for our students, which does not leave room for parents/guardians to gather.  There will be no parent workshop in 2021-2022.
