The Academy Foundation believes that better lives and a stronger economy are created through education. Educators and employees at The Academy have made an extraordinary investment in our community by helping students learn the knowledge, skills, and behaviors they need to successfully contribute to Mifflin County, the Juniata River Valley, and the Commonwealth.

The Foundation strives to support The Academy’s mission by building a community that makes positive contributions to the school. These contributions help create scholarships, develop programs, purchase equipment, and create an environment where students and our community can find success.

Your gift of any size to the Academy Foundation will help support the mission of promoting, supporting and financing the growth of career and technical education for secondary and adult education. Foundation funds are used for "high need" categories across the institution. This could include new equipment and resources, scholarships, program support, and much more. These funds are critical in providing state-of-the art training and a high-quality education for our students. Please consider a gift to the Academy Foundation today!
