Sponsor a Student
Why I Sponsor A Student
“The Sponsorship program enables us to feel connected to the school and our student in a way that is very personal and rewarding. We can really see the benefits of our gift and know that we are making a difference in a child’s life.”
– Courtney Pastrick,
sponsor since 2003
All students attend WJA on a full scholarship. WJA, in turn, relies on the generosity of its Sponsors to offer its high-impact academic program to disadvantaged young men.
Sponsors – as individuals or in groups – commit to paying a student’s tuition at $18,000 each year for three years.
As a Sponsor, you can observe the transformation of a young man’s life over his three years at the Academy. As you receive letters from your student, invitations to attend exclusive events and frequent e-newsletters, you will see the impact of your investment. As you sponsor a student – or lead a Sponsor Group – you give a young man the confidence that someone believes in his academic potential.
