I saw there were staff applications last year, can I apply to be staff this year?
Unfortunately, we are no longer accepting staff applications.
What happens if I’m admitted but can’t raise the money in time?
Last summer, all of our students were able to raise the money necessary to go to camp, often through donations from their family and friends, using a GoFundMe page, 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.
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?
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. Last year we had applicants from 34 different countries.
How do I apply for and receive a scholarship?
There is a separate scholarship form on the A Cappella Academy session page. It’s very simple, and once we receive our scholarship funds from various sources, we distribute it to our accepted campers based on need. The entire scholarship process happens after you have already been accepted, so don’t worry about it just yet. Many students were 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.
How can I stay up to date on the most current information about A Cappella Academy?
Please follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and you will be notified of all pertinent info! @acappellacademy
How many campers will be accepted?
We have space for 50-70 vocalists at each session this year. We're looking for a balance of voice parts and a wide range of abilities, so we hope you'll apply to join us!
Will parents be allowed to accompany their campers to camp?
Parents are welcome to pick up and drop off their children, and they are encouraged to attend the final showcase. However, parents are responsible for their own accommodations should they choose to stay in Los Angeles at any time during camp.
When will I know if I have been accepted to camp?
Applicants will be notified of audition results via email by Feb 1 2016.
Will campers have roommates?
Yes - campers will have one roommate of the same sex.
I live in the Los Angeles area, can I commute to camp?
Part of the goal of the Academy is to provide a true camp experience and musical community. So for this reason, we do not allow commuters.
