How do I apply?
Paper applications are available in the "Audition Information" link on the left side bar of this webpage, at each middle and high school Guidance Office, and at the School Board Office at 302 Dare Road in Yorktown. An electronic application may be submitted using this link: https://tinyurl.com/SOAapplication. An individual application must be submitted for each student (grades 8-11) wishing to attend School of the Arts. Students must also arrange recommendations from three current teachers. Dates for submission of completed applications for the next school year may be obtained from the School of the Arts Coordinator (757.220.4095). Eligible students are accepted into SOA based on grades, teacher recommendations, a reading comprehension test, interview, and audition.
