RCM Participating Schools - United States
The Royal Conservatory is proud to support our school partners in the United States who share our belief in the importance of a consistent, national standard of music education and regular assessment. Royal Conservatory Founding Schools† represent some of our key partners across the U.S., all of whom joined the initiative during our inaugural period offering our comprehensive curriculum and assessments in the United States. We value the dedication and commitment of these schools as they continue to provide unparalleled music education to their students, support teachers in their practice and celebrate the accomplishments of music students from coast to coast.

Note: All schools marked with an obelisk ( † ) symbol represent Royal Conservatory Founding Schools.

The Royal Conservatory welcomes U.S-based music schools with an interest in delivering our rigorous system to take advantage of the increased support we can offer. We recognize that your school may be pioneering our standardized music curriculum in your community and need some extra help educating teachers and parents on the benefits of structure, goal setting, and ensuring a consistent education across more than 20 instruments and voice. Or perhaps you have witnessed the success of teachers and students in surrounding studios and schools and you wish to champion The Royal Conservatory Certificate Program and make your school more marketable.

RCM Participating Schools have access to training and resource assistance, marketing support, and online recognition. We invite you to join the growing community of music schools, preparatory departments, and institutions that have adopted The Royal Conservatory Certificate Program.
