The Coronado School of the Arts (CoSA) is accepting applications for the 2020-21 school year. Application materials are due by Feb. 10, 2020. Students can apply to one of six CoSA Conservatories: Classical and Contemporary Dance; Digital Arts (Animation, Filmmaking, Game Design, and Graphic Design); Instrumental Music; Musical Theatre and Drama; Theatre Production, Design and Management; and Visual Arts.
CoSA is San Diego county’s elite public school arts conservatory, home to 200 scholar-artists in grades 9 through 12 who attend the nationally-ranked Coronado High School (CHS) for their core academic subjects. CoSA provides an intense, pre-professional arts education to students selected through a competitive application/audition process. CoSA offers approximately three hours of arts instruction each day, pairing young artists with industry specialists. With a curriculum designed by educators, students are immersed in their chosen discipline. This curriculum makes CoSA a California Department (CDE) Model Demonstration Site.
Any student in the greater San Diego area who has a passion for the Arts is encouraged to apply. All applicants will be offered an interview as well as an audition or portfolio review. Admission is merit-based. Successful applicants residing outside Coronado Unified School District (CUSD) will be eligible for an Inter-District Transfer (IDT).
Applications, admission deadlines, and more information about the six Conservatories is available on our CoSA website: www.cosasandiego.com.
Prospective applicants and their families are invited to attend one or both of our two upcoming events: CoSA Preview Night on Tuesday, Jan. 21 at 6 p.m. or CoSA Talk & Tour on Sunday, Feb. 2 at 12 noon at the Coronado Performing Arts Center Black Box Theatre, 650 D Avenue.
