It is advised that applicants and parents should research the MYCA thoroughly prior to attending this event. Applicants (not parents) will be interviewed individually. The interviewer will expect the applicant to answer questions honestly, regarding their willingness to attend voluntarily and, most importantly, to explain why THEY wish to be selected to receive an invitation.
The application process is very, very competitive. The MYCA serves young people from the entire state of Michigan; therefore demand overwhelmingly exceeds the number of spots available to attend the Academy. Those who procrastinate or do not have a completed application may miss a great opportunity to attend. The MYCA reserves the exclusive rights pertaining to which applicants are extended invitations based on its own criteria.
