Welcome to Willamette Academy
Willamette Academy reaches out to historically underrepresented communities by empowering youth who have the desire to advance to higher education.

Educate

By placing students at the heart of a college campus we demystify the college experience and educate students to navigate the barriers they may face.

Willamette Academy is an out-of-school college access program at Willamette University that serves students by providing additional support through mentoring, tutoring, monthly Saturday sessions and a summer camp.

We serve Salem-Keizer School District 8th- through 12th-graders from populations that are historically underrepresented in higher education: low-income, people of color, recent immigrants or first-generation college students.

In addition, we help our students overcome issues such as a lack of knowledge about high school requirements and unfamiliarity with the college application and financial aid processes.
By cultivating in our students both a love of learning and confidence, we guide them on a path to a four-year college or university of their choice — and a brighter future.
