Academy Scholarship Application

It is our mission to ensure that every child in the Bay Area has access to theatre.

Bay Area Children's Theatre works to provide access to our Academy programs to all students, regardless of their ability to pay. As such, we encourage all families with need to apply for a scholarship.

Please note: Resources are limited. Scholarship availability is dependent upon a number of factors. A completed application is not a guarantee of enrollment.

We do our best to review and respond to each application quickly.
If you have questions about the status of your application, or if you have questions about the application itself, please contact our Information Services Director,
