The Community School of Performing Arts is an open enrollment program. The term "open enrollment" means that there is no selective audition process for admission to the school. However, this does not guarantee every student a place, as high demand in some areas may preclude immediate enrollment. Auditions and interviews for appropriate placement in courses may be required.

Registration Methods

New Student Registration (In-person Required)

A student is considered new if they have never enrolled before, or if their attendance at the School has lapsed for a semester or more (excluding summer). Space for new students may be limited, as priority is given to continuing students.

All new students must register in person. In general, new students may register at any time during the year, depending on timing and provided space is available in the desired class or studio.

Continuing Student Registration (Email/Fax/Online)

All students are required to register at the beginning of each semester. The formal registration period usually takes place 3-4 weeks prior to the first day of classes. Each semester, continuing students are given one week of priority to enroll before new students.

During the fall and spring semesters, students who study privately are required to register for 16 private lessons. Any student who wishes to take less than 16 lessons, must provide written approval from their instructor. This documentation should accompany your registration form.

Continuing students may register via online, fax, e-mail, or in person. Click the following link to download the Registration Form and Credit Card Authorization.
