The Study Academy is committed to protecting the privacy of all our constituents. Maintaining the trust of this group is important to us, and we recognize that to keep this confidence, we must be responsible, transparent, and accountable in how we treat the personal information that is shared with us. The Study Academy gathers and stores personal information — such as your name, address, telephone number, and e-mail address — as provided by you, to communicate with you. Our privacy practices are designed to protect this information.

Personal information — gathered by The Study Academy through applications, registration, and updates provided by constituents — on students, parents of students and alumni, alumni, staff and faculty, former staff and faculty employees, and friends is used to do the following:

  • Send our constituents publications, collateral materials, updates, and information
  • Solicit financial support for the school
  • Inform our constituents of events, activities, and volunteer opportunities in which they may participate
  • Publish our annual student directory (distributed only to current families in the school)
  • Communicate with constituents on an individual basis

The school maintains personal information records on all constituents, including names, addresses, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, and other personal information that is made available and provided through interactions with you. It is your right to view your personal information on file at the school. We require notice to ensure that the appropriate individual is available to review your file with you, and is available to answer any questions or address any concerns you may have.

The Study Academy maintains private and key-access hard copies of documents at school and informational databases accessible only to validated members of staff through assigned individual security credentials. Volunteers and staff members may be provided with personal information on specific individuals to assist them with their responsibilities. Staff members and volunteers will be trained in dealing with personal information, by our privacy policy, and are required to adhere to this policy. Any third parties who conduct business on behalf of The Study Academy, such as mailing houses, are also obliged to adhere to the school’s privacy policy. The Study Academy does not rent, sell, trade, or provide personal information to individuals or organizations outside of the school.

The Study Academy does not track the e-mail nor unique IP addresses of visitors to our site; however, we do record the country of origin for each visitor and the web pages they viewed for statistical and research purposes only. At no time is the identity of the user known or recorded.

Services from select companies are outsourced to manage certain online activities for the school, e.g., online giving, the alumni e-mail directory, online special event registration, and ordering of textbooks online. These companies offer secure sites.
