Some famous acting schools include the Yale School of Drama, the Juilliard School and New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, according to HollywoodReporter.com. Famous schools abroad include the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Arts, both in England.
Agents and casting directors selected the acting schools on the Hollywood Reporter's list based on the success of graduates from the schools. When applying to acting schools, students must submit an application as they would to apply to any other college. They are also expected to audition, sometimes in multiple media, before the schools accept them.
