CHILL Academy is an affiliate of the Minnesota CHILL Foundation (“CHILL”) – which is a non-profit organization that provides academic programming to educate and prepare student athletic scholars for future success. CHILL was launched in 2011 by founders Chuck and Cindy Hill. The Hills have a long-standing and demonstrated history of care, generosity, and compassion for youth in the community through their various academic/athletic platforms.
To further build upon their legacy of promoting athletic & academic excellence within the community, the Hill family created the CHILL Academy, geared for youth in the K-8th grades. This new Academy is designed to take the youth participants through a 9-month afterschool program that will focus on improving math, reading, money management, and social/life skills.
As a non-profit and community-conscious organization, CHILL will take a collaborative approach to establish resources and partnerships with various sectors throughout the Twin Cities – as well as pursue funding through private corporate, foundation, grants, and individual contributions/donations to design and support programming that meets the needs of each youth individually, and collectively.
