Corporate Partnership Program

"The Out-of-Door Academy is a unique place for students to learn. Its academic programs are innovative and challenges every student to be successful. Since the first graduating class in 1999, every Out-of-Door graduate has been accepted to a four-year college or university. First Watch is proud to support Out-of-Door and we hope you will join us." - Ken Pendery, CEO
As we prepare for the upcoming school year, we encourage you to support The Out-of-Door Academy as a Corporate Partner. This initiative, depending on your participation level, offers valuable marketing opportunities, access to one or more signature events and the opportunity to invest in the future of Out-of-Door students.
The Out-of-Door Academy’s Corporate Partnership program partners with businesses of all sizes to support our Mission. Corporate Partners make impactful gifts used exclusively for academic, artistic, athletic, and technology programs that directly benefit our students and faculty.

As a Partner, you will invest in a dynamic forward-thinking academic institution, create community connections, strengthen ties within the ODA community, and receive a range of benefits. Corporate Partners are recognized throughout the school year in publications, marketing materials, on our website, and at special events.
