The Diamond Academy offers collegiate-level examinations through Trinity College of London, a leading independent exam board which has specialized in the assessment of communicative and performance skills around the world since 1877. DAPA is honored to be the West Coast Centre for Drama for the esteemed Trinity College of London.

We believe it is important to have our students examine with some of the best adjudicators in the world to receive additional professional feedback, and see their progress develop, through each exam they undertake. 

Trinity College Examinations are highly regarded and have some of the highest standards in the field, and in fact most institutions and colleges will reward college accreditation for Trinity Colleges higher level examinations.
