2018-19 Academy Student Handbook

2018-19 Academy Student Handbook

The information contained in the 2018-2019 edition of the Student Handbook supersedes all previous editions. Students and families are expected to be knowledgeable about all Academy procedures, policies and regulations. The Academy may make changes to its policies, procedures, or expectations between editions of the Student Handbook. Questions about the Student Handbook should be expressed to the Dean of Students, Academy.

Day Student Parents

The parent/guardian of a Day Student must call the Student Affairs Office 231.276.7378 to obtain a valid pass if illness, weather, or any other circumstance makes it necessary for the student to miss classes. Day students are subject to the same attendance policies as boarding students. If a Day Student must miss classes due to illness, a call from the parent/guardian must be received within 24 hours if a missed class is to be counted as excused. Please see the Academy Student Handbook for details on the attendance policy for Day Students.

On-Campus Lodging

Interlochen offers overnight accommodations of several styles. You may choose the Stone Center Hotel, which is centrally located on campus and is newly renovated. During the summer, Academy residence units are also open to accommodate guests. Interlochen also offers cabin-style lodges. These range from rustic to luxurious and from one-bedroom to three-bedroom units. Check rates and book online, or call 231.276.7570.

Dining Services

Every year, Interlochen students, faculty and staff produce more than 600 performances and presentations. It takes a lot of practice and rehearsal to maintain such creative energy throughout the year – and it also takes a healthy body and a clear mind. That's why the dining services team at Interlochen Center for the Arts strives to prepare the highest quality meals for students, faculty and campus guests.

Entrees and soups are made from scratch and menus are created weekly, allowing the food service staff to take advantage of fresh, local and seasonal products.

The Stone Cafeteria is located in the center of campus and serves students, faculty and staff throughout the year. During the summer, two additional cafeterias are opened – Lochaven and Pinecrest.
