Due to limited resources, theAcademy365 cannot accommodate all champion applicants and selects new champions based on carefully constructed criteria that consider their need for our services. We uphold a firm commitment to non-discrimination and do not discriminate based on race, color, religion (creed), national origin (ancestry), disability, or socio-economic background in any of our selection processes.

Please note: We are currently accepting waitlist applications for Champions.

Our committee will review any new Champion applications in the summer of 2024.
