How will I know that I've been accepted to the Academy?
Class space is limited. Applicants will be accepted on a first come, first serve basis. The first 36 applicants who have successfully completed and returned all documentation will be seated in the current class. All remaining applicants will be seated in the next scheduled class.
Applicants with incomplete documentation will be seated in the next scheduled class after receipt of all completed documents. Applicants will be notified by mail or email two to three weeks prior to the scheduled class date that they have been accepted into the Academy. Applicants are expected to confirm their intention to attend the mandatory orientation day when they receive the email.
