HSA Prep: Program Overview

Commitment from HSA Prep Students

All HSA Prep students are assigned a schedule of 4-8 classes per week by the director of their department. In exchange for full scholarship, prep students must maintain at least a B-average, give 4 work hours per week as teaching assistants or administrators gaining invaluable work experience, have exemplary attendance in all classes on their assigned HSA Prep schedule, and adhere to the policies of the School. Parents and students sign a commitment letter each year, and students must re-audition or undergo an evaluation session each year. At the end of each semester, students will receive full evaluations measuring their artistic growth, class participation, attendance, behavior and academic performance.
