Upon completion of the Conservatory Placement Activity, applicants will receive a scored rubric with helpful feedback and a proficiency level from our conservatory staff. With the exception of the Arts & Enterprise Conservatory (which does not require a Placement Activity), applicants will only be able to add an entry into the lottery for a conservatory in which they have completed a Placement Activity and met the minimum proficiency level. Each applicant will be given two (2) entries for the admission lottery. The two (2) lottery entries may be placed into one (1) single conservatory admission lottery or can be distributed between two (2) conservatory admission lotteries. Applicants will not be able to change their lottery conservatory selection after submission.
If there are more applicants who meet the minimum proficiency level than available capacity, a public lottery will be conducted in order to determine admission in each impacted conservatory. The admission lottery will be drawn by conservatory, grade level, and when applicable, concentration, to determine which students are offered admission. Each applicant will be randomly assigned an Applicant Number at the time their application is submitted, which will be used as identification in the admission lottery, in order to protect the privacy of prospective students. A public admission lottery will be conducted in accordance with the application of lawful preferences stated in our charter. Once all available spaces are filled for a particular conservatory, Applicant Numbers will continue to be drawn and placed on a waitlist in the order drawn. All applicants will be notified of the results of the admission lottery within ten (10) business days of the lottery.
