Frequently Asked Questions 

Why do students need to apply and audition for Middle School Arts Conservatories?  

Like other Application and Examination schools in DSPCD, DSA Pathways Schools are looking to identify students with specialized interests, talents and skills in the Arts for these programs. In addition to identifying the students who would most benefit from advanced arts training, having them study alongside other students of similar artistic interests and skills will intensify the learning experience.  

 

Will students already enrolled in the one of the 4 Schools need to apply and audition for Middle School Arts Conservatories?  

Yes. All grade 6-8 students must apply and audition to be accepted into a DSA  

Pathways Middle School Arts Conservatory. Students already enrolled in the school will be given “audition priority.” This means that students already enrolled in one of the 4 DSA Feeder Schools will be allowed to audition for Conservatory spots on-site at their schools prior to auditions for students from other schools.  

 

Do all middle school students at the DSA Feeder Schools need to apply to be in the Middle School Arts Conservatory in order to be enrolled in the school?  

No. Middle School students at the DSA Feeder Schools do not need to be in the Arts Conservatory in order to be a student at the school. Middle school students not in the Arts Conservatory will continue to have the opportunity take Arts and other K-8 electives.
