KINGSTON PREPARATORY FOR YOUNG ADULTS

Welcome to Kingston Preparatory Academy!

You have been selected out of thousands of students to join our growing number of students at KPYA/KU. I am delighted that you chose to represent our preparatory school/university l and will remind you that you are KPYA/KU's ambassador both on-camera and off-camera. Therefore I hope you take this position in our student body seriously, as KPYA/KU has developed a reputation over the years for its successful, ambitious, and passionate students.

(Depending on your status at school, your letter will contain the following in your a different colour. Full tuition students (of notable families) get purple, scholarship students get blue, producer plants/regular students get green, and university students get red.)

I am incredibly honoured that you have chosen KPYA/KU as your school. From the time it has been founded to now, KPYA/KU has survived on the generosity and love that your families have shown to this school. It is a privilege to welcome you here now, and I sincerely hope that you enjoy your time at KPYA/KU.

As you may already know, KPYA was historically a school for wealthy and famous children to attain the highest education possible. As the school modernizes, we understand that we cannot ignore intelligent, hard-working, and gifted students such as yourself. As scholarship students of KPYA/KU, whether your craft is in the academics, in the sports, in the arts, or something else, we are happy to have you represent our school in such a way.

I must remind you that your tuition is primarily covered by the school. Again, I am very enthusiastic and interested in seeing what a group of talented individuals like yourself may do with KPYA/KU'S resources.

Regardless of social station or scholarship eligibility, KPYA/KU have become thoroughly equal-opportunity thanks to the generous nature of the K-TV producers. While other opportunities to attend our hallowed halls may have been reserved in the past for the well off, or the talented, I am happy to announce that K-TV has offered to pay your tuition and fees(and a generous amount of compensation in the form of a salary) based off of your audition video.

Your attendance at KPYA/KU has been made possible by your personality, and along with the K-TV producers, I am excited to see what sort of interest and ratings you are able to create from our loving audience. I must remind you, however, that here at KPYA/KU we do not promote any kind of illegal or harmful activities, and you will face consequences for any detrimental actions.

To local students outside of scholarships, your attendance at KPYA/KU is noted as well, and you will thus receive a steep discount for attending the school.

If you are receiving this letter now, it is because you are to continue your education at KPYA beyond the estimated four years of study by being accepted into our KU program. We applaud your decision to continue at KPYA because we believe that we provide the best opportunities for our students to become future leaders of the world. We here at KPYA/KU welcome you back with open arms.

I look forward to another wonderful year at KPYA and am excited to meet all of the new and returning faces.

Yours Truly,


Eric Van Damme
KPYA Headmaster
