How do I become a CAPA Student?

Fill out an application

Admissions

CAPA is a special admittance school.  Prospective students must submit an application through the School District website, www.philasd.org, and audition for one of the seven art majors: Dance, Theater, Vocal Music, Instrumental Music, Creative Writing, Visual Arts, MDTV (Media, Design, Television & Video).  When applying you must indicate what major.

After the initial school district application has been approved, prospective students are notified to attend an audition at CAPA for their chosen art major.

​Determining enrollment in any major is based on academic records and audition results.

​Auditions are evaluated by the teachers of the respective program.
