About:APEX Academy is a 501(c)(3) non-profit that teaches student-athletes how to leverage the characteristics acquired from the great game of football and apply them to their life beyond the gridiron. By engaging, educating, and empowering young men through our academic prep, personal development workshops, and football development we hope to propel student-athletes into college, purposeful careers beyond college, and ultimately position them to become productive members of society.

Our founders, Kaleb Thornhill (Former Division I student-athlete & current NFL Front Office Executive) and Travis Key (Former NFL player/Division I student-athlete & current Packaging Engineer at Kellogg Co.), rose above their own under-resourced backgrounds to experience great success ON and OFF the field. Travis and Kaleb’s success is highly attributed to influential mentors throughout their life and they are on a mission to serve others to ensure individuals can find success in their future endeavors as well.

Mission:

Our mission at APEX Academy is to teach under-resourced student-athletes how to leverage the characteristics acquired from the great game of football and apply them to their life beyond the gridiron. By engaging, educating, and empowering young men through ACT prep, personal development workshops, and football development, we hope to propel them into college, purposeful careers beyond college, and ultimately position them to become productive members of society.

Vision:

APEX Academy will provide under-resourced student-athletes with access to education, mentorship, and leadership development empowering them to reach their full potential in life.  We were founded to guarantee that an individual’s current circumstances DO NOT indicate their future circumstances.  APEX Academy will enforce a culture that continues to challenge the status quo by ensuring student-athletes have the opportunity to see the full scope of their personal and professional potential.  We will partner with the student-athlete to help them understand the implications of the choices they make and the far-reaching consequences of playing and living “all out” and settling for less than their calling.

Purpose:

Engage, Educate, & Empower each individual we encounter to ensure they reach their full potential both ON and OFF the football field.
