When you visit you'll have the chance to meet students and faculty, tour the theatre and talk one on one with a member of staff who can answer your individual questions.
You'll also get plenty of informational material to take home with you, including the school catalogue, application for admission and information and application forms for Federal Student Aid.
The Admissions Process has three steps:
1. Visit the school for your Interview to learn more and ask your questions.
2. Complete the Application for Admission, which includes: application form, high school and/or college transcripts, references and an application fee of $30.
3. Once you've completed your application for admission call the school to make an appointment to Audition. You should bring your completed Application for Admission with you to the audition. The Audition itself is a cold reading of a monologue. When you arrive, we will give you the monologue and a studio in which to warm up. The audition itself takes about half an hour, during which a director will work with you on the monologue you are reading. It's like a mini-acting class.
There are also many opportunities to see our student actors at work - visit our calendar of events to learn about up-coming shows and events.
Class size is limited to 15 students to guarantee desirable student/teacher ratios. The school does, however, accept all qualified applicants regardless of race, religion, nationality, age or sex. The Conservatory's commitment to equal opportunity for all qualified applicants complies with the anti-discrimination laws of the United States and the District of Columbia. This commitment applies not only to the Conservatory's admissions policy, but to its education programs as well.
Applications for fall, spring and summer semesters are to be completed at least two weeks prior to the beginning of the semester. Please refer to the academic calendar for specific dates. The Conservatory will review applications received after the deadline, and students may be admitted until the first day of classes provided there is available class space.
