Thanks for your interest in auditioning for the Baltimore School for the Arts!

Admission is based solely on an audition and an interview. Current 8th and 9th grade students may audition in one or two art areas: Dance, Vocal Music, Instrumental Music, Film and Visual Storytelling, Theatre, Stage Design and Production, and Visual Arts.

You can apply to audition online OR by downloading and returning the form below.  Please note: if you have applied online, you do not need to send in a hard copy.

Audition Instructions

Below are the audition instructions. Remember, you can audition for two different art disciplines. However, you can only enroll in one field, even if you are accepted to both programs.

*Please note: Audition instructions for the 2021 school year have been amended due to COVID-19 to ensure that the process is safe for all faculty, students, and families.  Full details including zoom links and submission instructions have been emailed and mailed to families who have applied.  If you have not received your instructions, need a Spanish copy, or have any questions please email:

Shadow Days

Due to Covid-19 and school being virtual, BSA will not be hosting any shadow days during the 2020-2021 school year.

Our optional Shadow Day program enables you to visit art classes and get the inside scoop on what life is like as a BSA student.
