225. That’s how many millions of kilometres lie between the Earth and Mars. Some people think that humans will never make such journeys. At 225 Academy, we show young people that anything is possible.
225 Academy is a global educational organisation delivering innovative learning experiences that empower young people to flourish in a changing world. Our vision is to empower millions of people around the world and to harness the power of our global community to change the world for the better.
Our 5-day Academy for students aged 11 to 18 has proven highly popular around the world, having taken place at leading schools in the United Kingdom, Middle East, India, China and Singapore. The Academy is a unique learning experience that empowers young people to be self-confident, powerful communicators, with the Silicon Valley mindset and 21st century skillset required to flourish in a rapidly-changing world.
225 Academy was founded by two brothers – one a Cambridge University graduate, the other an Oxford University graduate and former President of the Oxford Union. They decided to found 225 Academy after realising that achieving top grades and graduating from world-renowned universities does not necessarily guarantee you all that it promises.
Through conversation with some of their inspiring peers, they saw immense value in bringing together a group of outstanding young role models to share their experiences with students, to complement and provide a distinct perspective from teachers and parents.
