Registration for the 2019 Academy Summer Program is now open!


Each summer The Academy offers a week-long intensive for students entering the 7th, 8th, and 9th grades. Students choose to focus on either Dance, Media Arts (film, animation, creative writing), Music, Theatre & Musical Theatre, or Visual Arts. This program is designed for students serious about the arts, and aims to provide practical instruction in a chosen discipline. We model our Summer Program after the curriculum current Academy students experience everyday, and therefore this is a special opportunity for young artists get to know The Academy. Feel free to contact Summer Program Coordinator Rose Colella at for more details.
