The Academy is our flagship communal learning experience for the next generation of entrepreneurs and change agents. Each year we convene high-capacity undergraduates and recent graduates from around the globe for a week-long intensive learning experience to share meals and ideas with the over 25 founders and thought leaders who come to speak and mentor.

THE ACADEMY IS OUR FLAGSHIP, WEEK-LONG COMMUNAL LEARNING EXPERIENCE
Academy 2018: July 30 - August 2
Each year, Praxis Academy works with a growing group of inspiring undergraduates and recent graduates who are serious about their faith and interested in pursuing redemptive entrepreneurship & innovation. The experience features dynamic presentations, breakouts, workshops, and roundtables where participants have personal access to 25+ leading entrepreneurs and leading cultural thinkers.
Since our launch in 2014, Praxis Academy has trained 500+ aspiring entrepreneurs from over 100 schools in the U.S. and a half-dozen internationally.
THE ACADEMY EXPERIENCE
We place significant emphasis on personal interaction, intimate settings for serious conversations, and custom-fit programs tailored to each student's specific interests, questions, and talents.
More of a community than a conference, Academy is designed to facilitate deep relationships with an inspiring group of diverse, values-aligned peers from around the globe. Applicants come from a wide range of backgrounds, interests, and passions. They are united by their pursuit of deeply purposeful work that is an expression of their Christian faith.
Praxis offers a unique perspective on application; we focus on synthesizing multiple inputs and developing a personal point of view. The experience includes a holistic view of faith, culture, and entrepreneurship: from the philosophical to the practical.
