High School Music Admissions

The UNCSA School of Music High School program is for students in grades 9–12. Students can enter into the high school music program at any grade level with the exception of the Voice program, which is for grades 11 and 12 only.

Along with your online application and required application documents, you will audition with the arts faculty. Admission into the School of Music program is based on a combination of your artistic and academic merits.
