WELCOME TO THE 2018 ACADEMY

From July 30 - August 3, we'll welcome ~230 next generation leaders to our fifth-annual Academy. We're thrilled to be hosted on the beautiful Biola University campus once again this summer, and led by this summer's Academy Faculty -- a group of 30 leading entrepreneurs and cultural thinkers (meet them here).

Below you'll find our schedule for the week, which will be gradually more updated as we get closer to the event. Please note: if you are attending from one of our Affiliate or Partner schools along with some of your students, we ask that you do not share this link or any of the schedule with the students.
