2020 Miss California Academy
June 24-27

You know that you possess the goods.
But you realize that you can't get there alone.
You're going to need real skills, a strategy, and advice from experienced experts.

The Miss California Academy is designed to give you just that.

We will help you come away with a signature style, a clearly articulated message and talent choice direction— all with the express purpose of making you memorable. At an intensive, week-long workshop that pulls back the curtain on what is required to make a lasting impression, our panel of experts break down each area of competition and tell you what matters—and what doesn’t.

From mastering the interview to choosing the winning talent, you’ll get an insider's perspective into what it takes to be Miss California and Miss California's Outstanding Teen. You’ll leave confident that what the judges are looking for is within your power to deliver.

Put yourself in the driver’s seat of your competition. Attend the Miss California Academy!

Open to any gender, 13 years and older; 12 year-olds enrolled in the 2020 Prince/Princess Camp and 12 year-old females who will be eligible to compete in the 2021 Season as an Outstanding Teen are also accepted.
