                                                  Media Policy

The Academy's media policy has been developed to engender cooperation with the media while ensuring the safety and security of our community. The overall goal of the Academy's media policy is to be responsive to media coverage and projects that directly relate to the educational mission of the Academy.

The Academy does not allow its name, images of its people, buildings or premises to be used for commercial media activity, such as advertising.

The Academy does not release information or pictures of its students or its alumni/ae without permission of the subject or, if a minor, the subject's parents. Photographers of any kind must make arrangements to schedule appointments on campus through the Communications Office. Photos may not be taken of our students, employees, buildings or premises unless the photographer is accompanied by a member of the communications staff or a designee of the Communications Office.
