The Professor’s Academy (TPA) grew from a professional photographer’s dream of giving our youth a chance to explore, be inspired, stay informed, and provide positive exposure to the arts and sciences surrounding them.
The Professor’s Academy is an established certified California non-profit organization which came to life from a gallery show produced by founder Michael Anthony. Inspired by the public response from the showcase of the African-American inventors and scientists, TPA was born. Mr. Anthony, as a professional scientific photographer with over 30 years of experience, wanted to continue using his experience to inspire and educate others.
Mr. Anthony’s vision to acquire the mobile educational mega bus to bring exciting, fully equipped scientific visual arts workshops to underserved youth in the Northern California area has been well received by the educational professionals and the community. Mr. Anthony’s vision extends to providing students with the opportunity to use technology, as well as the valuable academic connections to other institutions, technology companies and police departments that put visual science into action. TPA’s goal is to supplement the education our youth are already receiving to help foster interest in the arts, sciences and technologies surrounding them.
Michael Anthony hopes to make this dream a reality with the help of like-minded individuals and their donations. The Professor’s Academy’s mission in motion is an idea that could become a life changing initiative.
