Title IX

The Academy certifies compliance with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, as amended, 20 U.S.C 1681 et seq. (Title IX), and its implementing regulation, at 34 C.F.R. Part 106, which prohibits sexual harassment as defined under Title IX and discrimination based on sex. The Academy, as a recipient of federal financial assistance from the United States Department of Education, is subject to Title IX and does not discriminate based on sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, and expression, or pregnancy in employment or any educational program or activity it operates. This requirement applies to employment as well. Inquiries about the application of Title IX and its regulations to the school may be referred to the Title IX Coordinator, to the Assistant Secretary for Civil Rights of the U.S. Department of Education, or both.

If students, their parents/guardians, or anyone else on their behalf believe they have been subjected to harassment, including but not limited to harassment related to the students' sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, and expression, or pregnancy by school board members, staff, students, vendors, contractors, or other persons doing business with the Academy, it should be immediately reported to the Title IX Coordinator of the school and should provide specific details regarding the event, the date of the event, and the parties involved. The complaint will be considered confidential and will be expeditiously investigated by an impartial investigator, pursuant to the school's Title IX Grievance Procedures, with the assistance of legal counsel as necessary and appropriate. The Title IX Coordinator, Erika Beal, may be contacted in person, by mail, by telephone, or by email. The contact information is:
