As an accredited actor-training academy, the Conservatory operates under the oversight of the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges, and the US Department of Education; and its students are eligible to receive federal student loans and grants.  The Conservatory’s two-year, intensive, actor-training program – which is firmly rooted in the teachings of Michael Chekhov, Michel Saint-Denis and Constantin Stanislavsky – provides students with 1,800 hours of instruction, practice and rehearsal in 16 months.  The Conservatory’s faculty consists of actors, directors and playwrights who are actively employed in the DC-area theater and film community.  The Conservatory has been training people for careers in acting since 1975.
