Where Football meets Education
Why another Football Academy?
Academia FC México isn't just another football academy, but it is the first and only football boarding school in Mexico. We offer talented and socially disadvantaged boys and girls the opportunity to pursue both an athletic as well as an intellectual career path.
Mexican School Kids
... cannot always go to school.
Many children, especially from poorer and lower educated families, are forced to drop out of school to help earn money.
... play wherever they can.
But especially due to corruption a whopping 85% of these talents do not get the chance to play in professional teams.
We are working with top partners in the fields of athletics, education, and social institutions among others. They help us to handpick the most vulnerable but also the most talented adolescents, give them a top-level school and athletic education as well as provide all the housing, nutrition, and care that many of us take for granted but were lacking in our students' lives.
Along with our values, our partners, and some of the world's past and current football stars, who will guide these youngsters as personal mentors and friends, we develop educated societal role models through football.
We look for our students all over the Mexican Republic in order to find the most needy as well as the most talented adolescents.
Life @ the Academy
In a safe, integrative, and encouraging environment the students will live, learn, and grow – personally as well as professionally.
Getting a (post-)graduate degree or pursuing a professional football career won't always work out. But if it does, we are there to facilitate the opportunity.
With or without a university degree or a professional football career, our Academy-Alumni will be all set for an above-average job.
We morally bind our alumni to multiply the foundation's footprint by investing part of their income in their home communities.
Academia FC México is a non-profit organization helping Mexico's most vulnerable boys and girls with great passion and talent for football to become future societal leaders.
