Admissions

Information will be added here in August regarding the 23/24 audition timeline.

Thank you for your interest in applying to
Denver School of the Arts! 

Students seeking a chance to be a part of our nationally recognized school should review the general information on this page regarding our admissions process. For more detailed information about the specific audition requirements for each major, please use the links on the bottom of this page. We look forward to meeting you at your audition!

Unfortunately, we are not hosting “shadow” or preview days this school year, due to continuing health & safety guidelines.

Step 1
Complete the online application
Step 2
Attend or watch the pre-audition meeting
Step 3
Complete the DPS School Choice form
Step 4
Complete all audition components

Step 1: THE ONLINE APPLICATION

The online application will be open November 1, 2021 through January 1, 2022 at 5:00pm. Click here to access the online application and click on “Apply to Audition” at the top of the page. You may complete the online application at any point during this window of time. We will not take any late applicants, so please ensure you have completed this step no later than 5pm on January 1, 2022.

This online application will ask for basic information about your child: name, current grade, address, parent/guardian name. If your child is a current DPS student, it will ask for their 6 digit ID. No other preparation or materials are needed to fill out this online application and it will only take two to three minutes to complete.

Please make sure that you complete the entire online application. You will be prompted to first create an account. As soon as you create an account, you will proceed to the next step by adding your child’s name, grade, desired major. You will receive an automated email confirmation that you applied. This automated email from the online application system will contain your student’s name, grade and major. This is your confirmation that we have the application.

If you would like support in completing the online application, or do not have access to a computer/internet, you may come to DSA during the online application window and we will work with you. You are welcome to call the school to make sure your application was received online.

Students may apply and audition for one major only.

Note – Stagecraft and Design will only be accepting applicants for grades 9 through 12.

Once you’ve applied, the school will not call to confirm. Please use the email confirmation, as explained above, as your confirmation. Only completed online applications will be considered for auditions.

Step 2: THE PRE-AUDITION MEETING

A parent or an adult parent designee for the applicant must be able to attend in person or view their online pre-audition meeting in order to move forward in the audition process. We allow another adult to attend the pre-audition meeting in the place of the parent in case of emergencies/vacations/work/illness/etc. But an adult must either attend the pre-audition meeting (if hosted in person), attend the online meeting, OR watch a recording of the pre-audition meeting to represent the student and get the audition information and an audition time at the end of the meeting. The student applicant does not have to attend/watch the meeting, but they are encouraged to do so.

Each major will explain, in detail, the audition process and requirements for their department. This meeting will be your chance to ask questions specific to your major, outside school commitments, and rehearsal schedules, among other things.

At the end of this meeting, your child will be given an audition date/time for January. Audition dates are predetermined by the school; families do not select the audition date. Audition dates for each major are listed on each major’s admissions page under “audition information.”

You do NOT need to sign up for this meeting because your online application (step 1) is your signup. You simply log into your meeting at the designated pre-audition meeting date. 

Neither DPS Office of Choice and Enrollment Services, nor the DSA front office staff run the auditions. Please do not call them with your questions about auditioning for DSA. All audition questions will be answered at the pre-audition meetings by the major teachers.

Step 3: THE DPS SCHOOLCHOICE APPLICATION

Applicants to DSA are still required to participate in the DPS SchoolChoice process. The window to complete this part of the application is January 14, 2022 to February 15, 2022 at 4:00pm.

Go to https://schoolchoice.dpsk12.org to log in or to create an account. The DPS SchoolChoice form will ask you to rank your top 12 preferred schools within DPS, including charter schools and magnet programs such as DSA. When completing this form, please make sure to mark Denver School of the Arts as your 1st choice. The only students who will be enrolled at DSA will be those who are determined to be eligible after their DSA audition (step 4) AND selected DSA as their 1st choice on the DPS SchoolChoice form (step 3).

If you are a current DPS family and have a Parent Portal account, you will use this login to apply for SchoolChoice online from January 14, 2022 – February 15, 2022. To create a Parent Portal account, go to https://myportal.dpsk12.org/ and click Create an Account, or if necessary, you can retrieve/reset your password so you are ready to participate in Choice. It does not matter when during the Choice window you apply, so long as it is submitted by February 15, 2022 at 4:00pm.

If you are an out-of-district family, go to http://schoolchoice.dpsk12.org/ and create an account. Be sure you get confirmation of your application which is in the form of an email and/or text, whichever you select.

If you do not select DSA as your 1st choice school, please know that it is possible that your child may get their MORE preferred choice and not be assigned to DSA. You do not have to list all 12 schools, and if you are from outside of Denver County and only interested in DSA, then just list DSA as your sole choice.

You can contact DPS SchoolChoice at 720-423-3493 or schoolchoice@dpsk12.org if you have any questions about this specific portion of the application process.

Step 4: THE AUDITION

Some will be virtual, some will be live…. Each department will explain their audition process at their pre-audition meeting and more information is included below, by department.

Audition Feedback
Due to the large number of applicants and students who go through the audition process, we do not offer written or verbal feedback.

IEP/504 Accommodations for Auditions
If a student will need special consideration or accommodations in the audition process, the student (or parent/guardian) must request the special considerations sought or accommodations needed and must provide supporting documentation (such as an IEP or 504 plan). It would be discriminatory for the District to assume that special considerations or accommodations are necessary without first receiving such a request and appropriate supporting documentation. Please direct requests for special considerations or accommodations to Assistant Principal Aspen Burkett at aspen_burkett@dpsk12.org. She will need a copy of your student’s accommodations page at least one week before your student’s audition. The admission of an identified student with disabilities eligible for special education and related services is contingent upon the determination of an IEP Team that the student can receive a free appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment at the school.

Notification Process
All students who audition will be notified by email on February 9, 2022 about the outcome of their audition (either accepted, waitlisted, or not accepted). If you are accepted and have selected DSA as your 1st choice on the DPS SchoolChoice form, you will have a seat at DSA next school year. If you are waitlisted, we will contact you if openings become available. Please note: this may not be until the start of the 2022 school year. If you are not accepted, we thank you for taking the time to audition, but we will not be able to offer you a seat at DSA for the next school year.

DPS Office and Choice and Enrollment Services will notify all students of their 2022/2023 school assignment through the DPS online system (email and/or text) in late March 2022.

After our first round of auditions/acceptances are complete, we will post information here about any (if needed) 2nd round auditions, which will take place in March 2022. Please note: not all majors will need to conduct 2nd round auditions.

If you have general questions (after reading through all of the information on this page and linked under the specific major you are interested in), you may email Assistant Principal Anna Conley at anna_conley@dpsk12.org or 720-424-1807.
Questions specific to the major and its audition process will be addressed at the pre-audition meetings.

All information is subject to change. Please visit this site regularly for updates.

¡Gracias por su interés en solicitar ingreso
a la Escuela de Artes de Denver!

Los estudiantes que buscan la oportunidad de ser parte de nuestra escuela reconocida a nivel nacional deben revisar la información general que se presenta en esta página sobre nuestro proceso de admisión. Para obtener información más detallada sobre los requisitos de audición específicos para cada especialización, utilicen los enlaces que proporcionamos en la parte inferior de esta página. Esperamos con entusiasmo conocerles en la audición.

Desafortunadamente, no estamos organizando días para “participar como oyente” ni presentaciones preliminares este año escolar debido a las continuas directrices de salud y seguridad. Consulten nuevamente esta página pronto para ver un recorrido en video por nuestra escuela y salones de clases.

Paso 1
Llenar la solicitud en línea
Paso 2
Asistir o ver la reunión previa a la audición
Paso 3
Llenar el formulario EscojoMiEscuela de DPS
Paso 4
Completar todos los componentes de la audición

Paso 1: LA SOLICITUD EN LÍNEA

La solicitud en línea estará disponible desde el 1 de noviembre de 2021 hasta el 1 de enero de 2022 a las 5:00 p. m. Haga clic aquí para acceder a la aplicación en línea. Pueden llenar la solicitud en línea en cualquier momento durante este plazo. No aceptaremos solicitantes que presenten la solicitud tarde, así que asegúrense de haber completado este paso antes de las 5 p. m. del 1 de enero de 2022.

Esta solicitud en línea les pedirá información básica sobre su estudiante: nombre, grado actual, domicilio, nombre del padre/tutor legal. Si su estudiante es un estudiante actual de DPS, se les pedirá el n.° de ID de 6 dígitos. No se necesita ninguna otra preparación ni materiales para completar esta solicitud en línea y llenarla solo tomará de dos a tres minutos.

Asegúrense de llenar toda la solicitud en línea. Primero se les pedirá que creen una cuenta. Tan pronto como creen una cuenta, continuarán con el siguiente paso al agregar el nombre, el grado y la especialización deseada de su estudiante. Recibirán una confirmación automática de su solicitud por correo electrónico. Este correo electrónico automatizado del sistema de solicitudes en línea contendrá el nombre, el grado y la especialización de su estudiante. Esta es su confirmación de que recibimos la solicitud.

Si desean obtener ayuda para llenar la solicitud en línea o no tienen acceso a una computadora/internet, pueden venir a DSA durante el plazo para presentar la solicitud en línea y trabajaremos con ustedes. Pueden llamar a la escuela para asegurarse de que su solicitud se haya recibido en línea.

Los estudiantes pueden enviar la solicitud y hacer una audición solamente para una especialización.

Nota: escenografía y diseño solo aceptará solicitantes de 9.° a 12.° grado.

Una vez que hayan presentado la solicitud, la escuela no llamará para confirmar. Utilicen la confirmación por correo electrónico, como se explicó anteriormente, como su confirmación. Solo se considerarán para las audiciones las solicitudes de audición que estén completas.

Paso 2: LA REUNIÓN PREVIA A LA AUDICIÓN

Un padre o un adulto designado por el solicitante debe asistir en persona o ver la reunión previa a la audición para poder seguir adelante con el proceso de audición. Permitimos que otro adulto asista a la reunión previa a la audición en lugar del padre en caso de emergencias/vacaciones/trabajo/enfermedad/etc. Pero un adulto debe asistir a la reunión previa a la audición (si se realiza en persona), asistir a la reunión en línea O ver una grabación de la

reunión previa a la audición para representar al estudiante y obtener la información sobre la audición y un horario de audición al final de la reunión. El estudiante solicitante no tiene que asistir/ver la reunión, pero se recomienda su asistencia.

Cada especialización explicará en detalle el proceso de audición y los requisitos de su departamento. En esta reunión tendrán la oportunidad de hacer preguntas específicas sobre la especialización, los compromisos fuera de la escuela y los horarios de ensayo, entre otras cosas.

Al final de esta reunión, su estudiante recibirá una fecha/hora de audición para enero. La escuela predetermina las fechas de las audiciones, las familias no seleccionan la fecha de la audición. Las fechas de las audiciones para cada especialización se enumeran en la página de admisiones de cada especialización en “información sobre la audición”.

NO necesitan inscribirse para esta reunión, porque su solicitud en línea (paso 1) es su inscripción. Simplemente inicien sesión en su reunión en la fecha designada para la reunión previa a la audición.

Ni la Oficina de Servicios de Opción e Inscripciones de DPS ni el personal de la oficina principal de la DSA realizan las audiciones. No los llamen si tienen preguntas sobre la audición para DSA. Los maestros de las especialidades responderán todas las preguntas sobre las audiciones en las reuniones previas a la audición.

Paso 3: LA SOLICITUD ESCOJOMIESCUELA DE DPS

Los estudiantes que envíen su solicitud a DSA aún deben participar en el proceso EscojoMiEscuela de DPS. El plazo para completar esta parte de la solicitud es del 14 de enero de 2022 al 15 de febrero de 2022, a las 4:00 p. m.

Visiten https://schoolchoice.dpsk12.org para iniciar sesión o crear una cuenta. El formulario EscojoMiEscuela de DPS les pedirá que clasifiquen sus 12 escuelas de mayor preferencia dentro de DPS, incluyendo las escuelas chárter y los programas de enfoque especial, como DSA. Al completar este formulario, asegúrense de marcar la Escuela de Artes de Denver como su primera opción. Los únicos estudiantes que se inscribirán en DSA serán aquellos que se determine que son elegibles después de la audición de DSA (paso 4) Y quienes seleccionaron DSA como su primera opción en el formulario EscojoMiEscuela de DPS (paso 3).

Si son una familia actual de DPS y tienen una cuenta del Portal para Padres, utilizarán esa información de inicio de sesión para presentar la solicitud EscojoMiEscuela en línea del 14 de enero de 2022 al 15 de febrero de 2022. Para crear una cuenta en el Portal para Padres, visiten https://myportal.dpsk12.org/ y hagan clic en “Create an Account” o, de ser necesario, pueden recuperar/restablecer su contraseña para estar listos para participar en EscojoMiEscuela. No importa en qué momento del plazo de EscojoMiEscuela presenten su solicitud, siempre y cuando la presenten antes del 15 de febrero de 2022, a las 4:00 p. m.

Si su familia vive fuera del Distrito, visiten http://schoolchoice.dpsk12.org/ y creen una cuenta. Sea cual sea la opción que seleccionen, asegúrense de recibir la confirmación de su solicitud, que se enviará por correo electrónico y/o texto.

Tengan en cuenta que, si no seleccionan DSA como su primera opción entre las escuelas, es posible que su estudiante reciba la opción de MAYOR preferencia y no se le asigne DSA. No es necesario que enumeren 12 escuelas y, si residen fuera del condado de Denver y solo están interesados en DSA, simplemente enumeren solo esa escuela.

Pueden comunicarse con EscojoMiEscuela de DPS al 720-423-3493 o mediante un mensaje por correo electrónico a schoolchoice@dpsk12.org si tienen alguna pregunta sobre esta parte específica del proceso de solicitud.

Paso 4: LA AUDICIÓN

Algunas serán virtuales, otras en vivo… Cada departamento explicará su proceso de audiciones en su reunión previa a la audición y, a continuación, se incluye más información por departamento.

Comentarios sobre la audición
Debido a la gran cantidad de solicitantes y estudiantes que pasan por el proceso de audición, no ofrecemos comentarios escritos ni verbales.

Proceso de notificación
Todos los estudiantes que realicen la audición recibirán una notificación por correo electrónico el 9 de febrero de 2022 sobre el resultado de su audición (ya sea aceptado, en lista de espera o no aceptado). Si reciben la notificación de aceptado y han seleccionado DSA como su primera opción en el formulario EscojoMiEscuela de DPS, tendrán un cupo en DSA el próximo año escolar. Si se les coloca en la lista de espera, nos comunicaremos con ustedes cuando haya vacantes disponibles.

Tengan presente que esto puede no suceder hasta el comienzo del año escolar 2022. Si no son aceptados, les agradecemos por tomarse el tiempo para realizar la audición, pero no podremos ofrecerles un cupo en DSA durante el próximo año escolar.

La Oficina de DPS y la Oficina de Servicios de Opción e Inscripciones notificarán a todos los estudiantes de su asignación escolar para el año 2022/2023 a través del sistema en línea de DPS (correo electrónico y/o mensaje de texto) a finales de marzo de 2022.

Después de que se complete la primera ronda de audiciones/aceptaciones, publicaremos aquí la información sobre las audiciones de la segunda ronda (de ser necesario), que se realizarán en marzo de 2022. Tengan presente que no todas las especialidades deberán realizar una segunda ronda de audiciones.

Si tienen preguntas generales (después de leer toda la información en esta página y en los enlaces bajo la especialidad específica que les interesa), pueden enviar un correo electrónico a la subdirectora Anna Conley.

Las preguntas específicas sobre la especialidad y su proceso de audición se abordarán en las reuniones previas a la audición.

Toda la información está sujeta a cambios. Visiten este sitio de forma regular para obtener actualizaciones.
