Frequently Asked Questions

Students traveling to The Academy’s campus in New York must satisfy health and wellness requirements before beginning class or arriving in housing. These requirements are subject to change based on requirements at the time of program start, but currently include:
  • Proof of a full COVID-19 vaccination. This can be submitted no less than two weeks prior to the first day of the students program, or move-in date for housing, whichever comes first.
  • A negative COVID-19 test upon arrival in New York (this can be after the student has moved into housing or started classes).
No. Limited on-campus housing is available on a first-come, first-serve basis for an additional cost. More details on the Academy House residence can be found here.
Some elements of the on-campus program may be conducted virtually to help facilitate campus wellness protocols. This may include coursework, such as exercises based in Voice & Speech, that best lends itself to presentation on the virtual platform.
Scholarships and financial aid are reserved for those attending our full-time program. At the time you are accepted into our Summer Program, you will receive a tuition payment deadline. However, if necessary, we would be happy to work with you to the best of our ability to extend this deadline pending space in the program.
We are unable to provide payment plans for our Summer Program.
We encourage those of all levels of training and experience to apply. We pride ourselves on meeting students of all levels, exactly where they are, tailoring our work in the classroom so each student gets the maximum benefit from their experience. Students must be at least 16 years of age to participate in the Summer Program.
You can expect to be in class between 4 to 6 hours per day, Monday through Friday. Work will be expected outside of the classroom (research, character development, memorization, etc.), however, it is up to each student to self-manage their time and what is expected of them.
Students may enroll in either or both the five-week and two-week on-campus programs. On-campus program participants should not simultaneously enroll in a separate online course with The Academy, but may take the online Two-Week Intensive during Session A (June 7-June 18).
You will receive a formal letter confirming your completion via email at the end of the program.
No, an audition is not required. Instead, a decision will be made based off your completed application. Please be sure to include as much detail and information as possible so the committee can make the most informed decision.
