Help Jay go to A Capella Academy

Donation protected
I set this GoFundMe up as an educational/extracurricular expense on behalf of Jay Phillips.

Jay auditioned and was accepted again into A Cappella Academy for summer 2023!

Jay loves to sing and truly has an amazing and pure voice. This experience allows them to learn new skills and enhance the talent they already possess. It also creates great networking opportunities for their desired career path in music/arranging and they form new friendships from around the world.

Jay graduates this year and with trying to stay current in school plus their additional obligations with Theater and A Capella - it leaves very limited availability to work and earn money towards their goal, so they need your help again to make it all happen.

Below are details about this opportunity:

A Cappella Academy is an all-inclusive sleep-away experience. The camp is held at Scripps College in Claremont, CA. It’s an international program that’s open to students ages 12-18 from all countries, and is by audition only. Admission to the program is only offered to 85 vocalist. Tuition covers: room (bed and bath linens included); all meals and snacks; all educational costs; ground transportation to and from the airport; an off-site trip; camp T-shirt; custom water bottle. Tuition does NOT include travel to and from camp.

* Jay’s goal is $3,500
* Camp is 10 days, June 30 – July 10, 2023 in Claremont, CA
* Tuition is $2,500 (up from $2,250 in 2022)
* Flights are NOT included in tuition and are the responsibility of the participant. A round trip flight from CMH to LAX or ONT, CA is roughly $750-$950
