Areté Academy – United States is a track of the Alliance Defending Freedom Areté Academy. It is a one-week leadership development training program for highly-accomplished college students and recent graduates who are interested in future careers in law, government, and public policy. This Academy is a unique combination of substantive legal instruction, strategies for professional development, methods for cultural engagement, and spiritual formation.
Through the rigorous curriculum, Delegates will engage the foundations of law and justice, natural law principles, and biblical worldview training. Together, Delegates explore how these foundational principles apply to some of the most pressing issues facing society today, including religious freedom, intellectual tolerance and academic diversity, marriage and family, as well as the right of conscience and the sanctity of life. These elements are all designed to equip Delegates to fulfill their God-given vocational callings with character and excellence.
Areté Academy – United States creates the unique opportunity for each Delegate to join a thoughtful community that values and promotes both faith and professional excellence. Delegates will establish personal connections with other students, who will then become lifelong colleagues, associates, and friends.
