Alumni Success Program

The mission of the Alumni Success Program is to connect UA Alumni to the resources they need to complete college and build successful careers. The Alumni Success Program aims to increase the probability of success in an institution of higher education and level the playing field for University Academy graduates by providing support, information, and connections. We strive to be the most successful Alumni support program in the country based on 6-year Alumni college graduation rates.

The Alumni Success Program works with University Academy Alums to ensure they have the resources they need to succeed at their respective universities. The Program also works to open doors and create networking opportunities on behalf of our alumni who are looking for critical summer internship experiences or job opportunities.
