We know that scholarships are important as families consider which school their student will be attending next year. 

Below are details on how to audition for each of our Academy Days scholarships.

 

Please read the requirements carefully, ensuring that each aspect listed below is included in your audition video. Please begin each separate audition video by stating your name and grade level so that we can ensure you receive the proper scholarship based on your qualifications. Scholarships will only be give to those registered for Academy Days. 

Students are encouraged to audition for as many scholarships as they desire. Scholarships are not guaranteed for each audition. Scholarships will be distributed based on the talent and qualifications of a student in that area. The combined amount of scholarships redeemable for dorm students is $2,000 and $1,500 for village students. If a student received a scholarship for a particular area during a previous Academy Days and receives a scholarship for the same area this year, the highest scholarship amount will be used.
