Audition Overview

Apply between October 12 - December 1, 2022

The 25 DOE high schools that offer audition programs all use the same common audition components across programs in the same arts discipline (such as visual art or dance). This means that if you want to apply to, say, three dance programs, you would only need to submit one dance audition.

High School Applications open October 12, 2022. All Applications must be submitted by December 1, 2022.

The deadline to submit auditions and other assessments is December 9, 2022.

Students submit virtual auditions (and assessments for some screened programs) online directly through their MySchools account.

What Happens After I Apply?

Once you apply and submit your audition materials on MySchools, you wait!

Some students may be invited to a callback. Students are invited to a callback if additional information is needed. 

Some students invited to a callback do not receive an offer, some do; some students not invited to a callback do not receive an offer, some do. 

In March, students who applied to any New York City Department of Education high school will receive one offer letter from the Office of Enrollment. If a student receives one (or more) offers from LaGuardia, the offer will be on the offer letter. Individual high schools do not communicate offers to applicants.

Please do not reach out to individual high schools to inquire about the status of your application.
