Life Academy would not be able to provide the many special programs we offer our students without help from our partners.
For ongoing collaboration and continuous support throughout the year, we owe our appreciation to many people at the following organizations:
AIA works to develop summer and Extended-Day Programs (occurring before, during and after school) involving real-world community projects that reflect young people’s interests and their community’s needs. AIA runs Life’s Community and Extended Day Programs, working with more than 150 students at Life Academy.
Native American Health Center aims to improve and maintain physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual well-being with respect for cultural traditions and to advocate for the needs of all people, especially the most vulnerable members of our community.  NAHC will provide much-needed health services to Life Academy students including physicals, immunizations, reproductive health care, nutrition services and health education to Life Academy students.
OSF’s mission is to help Oakland’s innovative public schools to identify, secure, and manage resources to meet the underfunded needs for our children’s education.
Summer Search is a national leadership development program that helps low-income young people graduate high school, go to college, gain successful careers, and give back to society.
FACES for the Future works with the Children’s Hospital and Research Center at Oakland to provide a three-year internship program. The program introduces underrepresented minority high school students to the health professions, assists those students in getting into educational programs of their choice, and equips them with the necessary personal skills to succeed in these and other demanding pursuits. Many of Life Academy’s outstanding medical internships are a success because of the people at Faces for the Future.
East Bay Consortium was established in 1978 as part of the California Student Opportunity and Access Program (Cal-SOAP). The East Bay Consortium of Educational Institutions, Inc, (EBC) was founded to develop and improve educational opportunities for students in the East Bay. The East Bay Consortium’s mission is to increase the number of students finishing high school and enrolling in postsecondary institutions, through intensive educational enrichment. We offer many resources to help improve educational opportunities for students. Through these resources and our efforts, we promote their success in secondary school and in college. Most of our programs serve primarily students from low-income families or from environments with historically low college attendance rates.

The mission of the Wright Institute is to educate psychologists to practice at the highest level of professional competence; analyze and evaluate research, theory, and practice; and make appropriate life-long use of the evolving body of psychological knowledge.  The Institute prepares psychologists to seek continually to deepen their knowledge of the influences of the social and cultural context of their work, to observe the highest ethical standards, and to understand the importance of self-awareness to effective professional practice.
