Enrollment Procedures

The Community School of the Arts provides a full component of lessons and classes in the disciplines of piano, strings, wind, brass and percussion instruments, visual arts, dance, and creative writing throughout the school year, September through May. Although the school year is divided into three 12-week semesters, students enroll in their choice of classes and lessons for the duration of the entire school year.

At the end of each year, students are asked to sign a Letter of Intent in order to reserve their spot for the coming year. Returning students are always given first priority in scheduling. Nevertheless, we encourage new and prospective students to put their names on the mailing and/or waiting lists at any time during the school year and to submit their financial disclosure forms early.
