Academic Calendar

There is never a dull moment in The Young Americans. With our conservatory-style college class schedule and our extensive production opportunities, our students are constantly learning, performing, studying, or working together on the next big project. In order to accomplish all The Young Americans do in a year, each of our students are trained in workload management, communication skills, and personal health. Learning how to be successful in such a rigorous schedule is just one of the reasons our alumni flourish in their lives and careers.
