he Academy of CLASS (Committed Leaders Acquiring Success Strategies) was founded in Miami, Florida by Mery N. Dominguez. We are committed to uplifting teens through personal development. From job skills to life skills, teens learn positive strategies to foster a healthy transition into adulthood.

Brief History

In the first year of establishing Academy of CLASS we catered to 32 pregnant teenagers. Three of them had intentions to go to college or post-secondary education. After implementing AOC's curriculum, 19 out of the 32 teens were accepted into college and six entered a vocational program.

The AOC initially set out to help young moms, but has evolved alongside the ladies who have been inspired. The Academy of CLASS continues to provide training that prepares and empowers those who are shaping the future for generations to come.
