Ms. Severson provides details of days of attendance, typical schedules, and other pertinent information related to the student experience at CPFA. Once the tour is complete, families will be asked general questions about the applicant’s current schooling, artistic interests, and artistic areas of focus. At the end of the scheduled tour and interview, students may choose to schedule an audition date with Ms. Severson. Auditions are held on Fridays, beginning in February, for the following school year. All applicants, regardless of grade level or interest, undergo the same audition process. Auditions typically begin in January and continue on a monthly basis through June. Depending on the number of applicants, auditions may be held more frequently than once a month.

All above application information will be presented again after form submission and sent promptly via email.
