The NYC Department of Education provides families with a diverse choice of arts-focused schools with strong academic curricula. To apply for arts programs at particular Public High Schools, students must complete an Audition process for each program to which they wish to apply. Last admissions season, all auditions were virtual submissions. For this cycle, families should be prepared to submit virtual auditions. Arts programs available at NYC Public High Schools are distributed among the disciplines listed below. Click on each discipline for a video about "How to Prepare For" an audition for that discipline.
