Every applicant will be required to do an in-person interview with a staff member of the Academy. Interview dates are given once an applicant has submitted an application and attended an orientation. Interviews are always done in-person and never on the phone.
Remember, an in-person interview is required for acceptance into the Academy. We conduct these interviews for many reasons, one of which is to gauge the applicant's motivation to attend the Academy and ensure he/she wants to attend. We have a limited amount of positions available for each class. If a student quits or leaves at any time throughout the course, we cannot replace the student. Essentially, they have eliminated the opportunity for another candidate. The best suited applicants for our Academy are those who have identified the need and desire for change in their lives.
