The United States Achievement Academy is an organization that offers an exclusive outlet for student recognition and scholarship opportunities. Teachers play the most important role in the recognition of these students. They decide which students are deserving, and the Academy follows-up on the teachers' recommendations by offering its recognition program and membership to the nominated students for parental approval. Its purpose is to recognize students through national publication describing the students' educational achievement. This company is in the business of publishing and selling biographical directories listing students from across the United States in various academic and extracurricular activities. Student nominations are received from middle school, high school teachers, counselors and coaches for inclusion in its directories. Additionally, the company seeks participants from various honor roll listings. Students are not required to pay to have their names and biographical information listed, nor are they required to buy a yearbook. There is not cost for recognition. At the student's option, however, the student's picture can be included for a $14.95 fee. The firm states it is funded by proceeds from the sale of its yearbooks which are primarily marketed to participants and their family members for $50 to $60.
