About Us Who We Are

Who We Are

At Academy Mortgage, we believe that the American Dream is built upon sustainable homeownership. We recognize that what we do has a noble purpose and that we exist to make homeownership a reality for as many people as possible. It is our privilege to be a part of such an important milestone in our customers’ lives.

  • A Unique Company Culture
    Products are products. Rates are rates. Our company culture focused on families, not files, is what sets us apart from banks and other mortgage lenders, and we like it that way. We care about our employees, we care about serving others, and we care about making dreams come true by getting families into homes.
  • A People-Centric and Purpose-Driven Mission
    Academy Mortgage’s mission is to create life-changing experiences through lending.
  • Committed to Our Communities Through Service Initiatives
    We believe we have a responsibility to give back to families and communities–both at home and abroad–whose needs are great and whose resources are limited. We fulfill this responsibility through partnerships with housing-related nonprofit organizations; local service projects to benefit the homeless, children, Veterans, and disadvantaged groups; and through biennial Service Expeditions to communities in need around the world.
