The Academy is currently in the process of rolling admissions. Applications received during this period will be considered based on space availability, and applicants will be contacted by the Admissions Office to schedule an audition on an individual basis.

Please note that the application is only open to students currently in the 8th, 9th, or 10th grades. For families outside of those grade levels interested in The Academy, please fill out our Request for Information, or contact the Admissions Office directly. 

Until your family has completed an application, we cannot reserve an audition date or time.

The tuition assistance deadline for priority consideration was Friday, January 11. Late submissions cannot be guaranteed assistance, even in cases of demonstrated need. Please apply through FACTS. If there are questions regarding the Tuition Assistance program, please contact Kitsana Salyphone, Director of Enrollment Management at 312.421.0202.
