Audition Process



The audition process for Fall 2020 Auditions will be adjusted due to COVID-19 safety concerns.  We are committed to providing an equitable, safe process.  The adjusted process will have students submit their audition online.  Applicants will not come to LaGuardia Arts for their audition.  The audition will be a modified version of our regular process.  The process will be announced once finalized.

The DOE has not finalized all of the information. We received information that the dates published in the High School Directory and the Specialized High School Directory are no longer correct -- all deadlines are being pushed back to an unspecified, as yet, date. This is all due to making sure the entire high school application process is safe for all individuals.  Please remember that current guidance counselors or the Family Welcome Center will provide families with account creation codes for the application process software, The codes for this coming year are not being distributed, yet.  When we have update information, we will post it to the Admissions section of our website.

Families uses MySchools ( to register to audition for one or more of the studios.  The student’s current school counselor may also register students in mid-October.  Once registered, families will receive an Audition Ticket through the online system or from their current school counselor. The Audition Ticket will show the audition date, time, and location.  The student’s current school counselor can assist with any issues.

Generally, students who audition for one studio can expect the audition process to last up to 4 hours.  Students auditioning for two studios can expect the process to last up to 8 hours.  Only two auditions per day are allowed.  Students auditioning for three or more studios will register for the remaining studios via their guidance counselor.
