Here in the Student Services department we pride ourselves on our students’ growth and achievements. While attending The Young Americans College of the Performing Arts we have a number of services designed to empower, inspire, and encourage our young performers as they navigate life as college student and and as a Young American. Below you find a list these services along with brief descriptions. This page will be updated periodically as we grow and develop new ways for our students be successful. Have a great day and we hope to see you around campus soon!
