Students currently in grades 8-11 in Warren Consolidated Schools are eligible to audition for the upcoming school year. Students currently in grades 6-7 should visit the Middle School Visual and Performing Arts Program.
All students will complete the (in-person) audition at WCSPA (on the Sterling Heights High School Campus, 12901 15 Mile Road, Sterling Heights, MI). The auditions will start at 4PM. The audition will take about and hour and a half. You can enter through the middle front doors of the building.
Parents are welcome to wait in the hall during the audition process, but they will not be allowed to watch the auditions. Please arrive at least 10 minutes before your scheduled time to provide enough time to get checked in and comfortable.
After completion of the audition process, students will be notified by mail that they have either been accepted, wait-listed, or denied admission for the following school year.
Accepted students should bring their acceptance letter to their school counselor for scheduling purposes. WCSPA is a two-hour block course that runs all year, spanning both semesters.
