Student Body: My class sizes ranged from 14-16 students. In total, we had about 110 students in the first year and it is expected that we will have fewer this year. The size of the Student body is great. Small, but thats something I personally like.

Academic Flexibility: The Academy has a fixed curriculum, so we didn't get to pick any classes the first year. Certain classes changed each semester as well as the class times, which, on occasion, completely changed scheduling things outside of school. However, you can mention your work schedule and they will do their best to work with you.

Career Services: The Academy does provide on site jobs and allows the majority of students to work outside of school. However, a good number of on site jobs go to foreign students, because of international work laws.

Academic Experience: I have learned a great deal about theater/film. As well as the business, diversity, and expectations that go with this career. They through a lot of things at me in nine months, which at times became a little overwhelming, but it all made sense and became very practical after applying it in real life situations, which they provided with their exam plays.

Academic Experience: This is a great school for actors. The class sizes are wonderful, the teachers have real world experience, and it's located in the middle of one of the greatest cities in the world. It's safe and divers school for those who wish to pursue a career in the performing and visual arts.

Campus Resources: I like the availability of the studios to work on choreography. The dorm are within the community which is very quiet, that makes you feel as if you are part of the community without having a campus feel.

Academic Flexibility: The Academy can be accommodating, but it comes with very strict guidelines. Most classes start at 8 or 9 am and the last class can end at 10 (although I personally don't know). Since there is a small population of students to begin with, every class you have are with the same people. The Academy matches with people who share your strengths and weakness for your first year. If you work, tell them and they will do there best to accommodate you, however know that you can only work a certain amount of hours a week do to the vigorous work load. School will take up most, if not all, your time and even after class is over, the work doesn't stop. There are after-school rehearsals with cast mates and homework.

It's been fairly easy for me since I decided not to work during my first year, wanting to focus solely on school. Students who did work, made it happen, but they were exhausted and didn't have any room for schedule changes. (The Academy cannot change your schedule during the middle of the school year. You start and end each semester with the same schedule. Schedule changes with each semester.) Students who made a living as an actor already, and decided to study with the Academy had a hard time finding work due to time consuming schedule.

Campus Resources: The Academy has Campus Activities but not many.

There is Student Council and Year-book Committee (2nd Years).

Most of the events held at The Academy are guess speakers (most of them are Alumni); The topics range from facts and advice about the business to street safety.

There are no athletic centers, the classes itself provide exercise. But If you are looking for more, there are gyms near by.

There aren't places for students to just lounge around, most group activities are scheduled by the students outside of the Academy.

Career Services: I have yet to graduate so my knowledge is limited; however based on what I've witness the alumni network is pretty extensive.
Alumni are able to come back as guess speakers and even perform their work at The Academy. Some graduates even come back to teach.
While at the Academy their is a possibility to work in different departments such as Props, or Costumes. Their is even an Director's Assistant position available for 2nd years during the school year.
After you graduate, it is possible to work for these same departments, or be recommended to others.
From what I've witnessed the Alumni Network is the best way to find out about up-coming projects. And this starts from the moment you are a first year. The people you are in class with could very well be a casting director, or director, even a producer when they leave. Its about keeping in touch.
Also, the school has a subscription to Backstage, which is available to students.
