Willamette Academy is an after-school, weekend and summer college access program in which students are challenged to enhance their critical thinking skills, see themselves as leaders in their community and develop a love of learning. Through community support and cooperative efforts with families, most Willamette Academy students will be the first in their families to attend college.
