Physical development is an integral part of our daily life. Through personal challenges, such as half marathon at the end of the academic year, we practice teamwork and physical endurance. Every morning we start with sports. Whether ballroom dancing or track and field, or yoga, or martial art – we equally enjoy the process and interaction.


Own experience creates the best memories and solutions. Emotions are what we experience inall our activities: sports, volunteering, academic program, and especially in travels. Thanks to travels throughout Ukraine we get to know our homeland, and thanks to travels throughout the world we understand what and how needs to be changed. One day a week we devote to volunteering, helping community, in which we live.


Knowledge and ability to use it shape us as leaders. About 50% of the Academy’s program is devoted to promoting the development of our intelligence. Wise, informed and meaningful decisions of new leaders change Ukraine. For 10 months the Academy is visited by more than 60 lecturers and opinion leaders with lectures.
