School Notes:

The Academy offers a two-year professional training program, a third year advanced performance program (The Academy Company) and a six-week summer program, in both New York and Hollywood. The Academy stresses practical, professional training for stage, film and television. The program is highly structured, focusing on acting, voice and speech, and movement, with an emphasis on self-discipline, self-discovery and, above all, individuality. At each stage of development, students' classroom knowledge is tested through onstage performances. Students who excel may be invited to join the Academy Company. Participation in the Academy Company offers actors further performance opportunities, often in the presence of casting directors, agents and other industry professionals. The Academy's California home on 1336 North La Brea Avenue between Sunset and Santa Monica Boulevards is in the heart of Los Angeles--the entertainment capital of the West Coast. The Los Angeles campus is built on what was formerly the Charlie Chaplin studio lot, and is a state of the art facility with classrooms, acting studios, a costume and props shop and a television studio. Financial aid programs and services assist students and families with paying for the cost of attendance. Students and their families must demonstrate financial need. Financial aid packages may consist of a combination of grants, scholarships, campus employment, and loans. All packages are tailored to meet each student's need. The Academy participates in various federal and state financial aid programs and offers a choice of payment plans as well as scholarship. Complete details regarding financial aid are available through the Financial Aid Office.
