About the 49ers Academy

Located in East Palo Alto, the San Francisco 49ers Academy is a private non-profit agency embedded in the public school system providing on-site services, staff, and programs to middle and high school students. This unique and innovative model allows the 49ers Academy to address the ongoing challenges facing low-income students and helps bridge the opportunity gap that they face daily.
