Community doesn’t end when you graduate from the Academy. We are developing a section of our website that will be available only to graduates of the Two-Year Academy so that you can network with other Academy Forum members, share ideas, pictures, access newsletters, etc. This is a work in progress. We will notify Academy Forum members when this feature is available for registration. In the meantime, feel free to share your ideas for this space by contacting the Academy office and enjoy our new website. There is also a new Academy Facebook page that you can follow to get the latest updates. Please help us spread the word about the Academy's updated digital presence!
