Helping young men reach their full potential
The Achievement Academy provides multifaceted mentoring, counseling and training programs, which assist African American males from 12 to 18 years of age. Our primary focus is the development of life skills and the pursuit of educational objectives. The Achievement Academy serves as a vehicle to allow our students to learn about key life related topics that are not incorporated in the traditional school curriculum. The program provides students with knowledge and tools that will allow them to excel in the classroom and in the real world. The topics they learn will provide a strong foundation as they become responsible adults.
