Each Academy theme varies based upon current topics students will deal with throughout their senior year and postgraduate life.  Participants engage in conversation and help shape the experience.

The program pairs each senior with an alumni mentor who provides one-on-one mentorship and support to discuss topics like personal and professional development, including career exploration, work-life balance, navigating financial planning, transitioning from a student to a working professional.
