of Choice Application
Admission to the School of the Arts is based on a formal audition process. Students may select only one major field of study in:
Creative Writing, Dance, Drama, Music: Instrumental and Vocal,
Theatre Technology or Visual Arts.
Auditions are approximately 3-4 hours long and are measured according to a standard rubric. For each audition, students are graded in a combination of group and individual settings. Auditions are judged by a team of faculty members and each student receives a numerical score from 1-to-10 based on the overall quality of the audition.
If you have a passion for artistic expression, we encourage you to explore
School of the Arts.
If you have any questions regarding our audition process, please call the Audition Hotline at 324-3502 and leave a message. All calls will be returned within two business days.
To submit your application electronically
Please submit only one application. Multiple entries may cause delays in the scheduling of your child's audition.
Please Note: If you are applying to SOTA, you must also complete the School Selection booklet by February 3, 2017. If your child is not accepted into School of the Arts and you have not completed the Schools of Choice Application Booklet, your child’s placement into grade 7 will be determined solely by seat availability. This booklet is also being mailed to families in December.
