FAQ

Do I need to be able to read music to audition for A Cappella Academy?
Definitely not! It doesn’t hurt of course, but as long as you are able to harmonize and learn parts by ear, you’re good!

I’m a beatboxer who isn’t the greatest singer. Can I still audition and is there a chance of me getting in?
Yes absolutely!

Will A Cappella Academy be expanding to other cities besides Los Angeles?
We would like to expand eventually, but currently we only operate in Los Angeles.

I live outside of the US, can I still apply?
Yes! We welcome international applicants. We have had applicants from 30+ countries around the world!

What happens if I’m admitted but can’t raise the money in time?
Most of our students are able to raise the money necessary to go to camp, often through donations from their family and friends, crowdfunding, etc. If you are admitted, we believe in you that you’ll be able to raise the funds! However, if you aren’t able to, we will allow you to drop out three months before camp starts.

How do I apply for and receive a scholarship?
The entire scholarship process happens after you have already been accepted, so don’t worry about it just yet. It’s very simple, and once we receive our scholarship funds from various sources, we distribute it to our accepted campers based on need. Many students are also very successful at raising funds on their own and used a combination of their own raised funds and our scholarship funds to put towards tuition. For more information, please see our Scholarship Fund page.

I saw there were staff applications last year, can I apply to be staff this year?
Unfortunately, we are no longer accepting staff applications.
