Academy students routinely score above the state and national averages on standardized tests. The ACT is the most commonly taken college entrance exam at The Academy, and the students’ average score was 17% higher than the state average in 2016-2017.
Furthermore, nearly a third of The Academy graduates pursue a non-arts major in college. Students find that a robust academic and arts education prepares them for a wide range of academic majors, and recent graduates will attend schools like Juilliard, Princeton, MICA, and Stanford, well prepared for a breathtaking variety of paths. Our alums include not only Grammy winners and Broadway stars, but physicists, attorneys, computer programmers, entrepreneurs, executive directors, and other professionals in numerous other fields.
