Mississippi School of the Arts auditions set for June 10

The Mississippi School of the Arts (MSA) will hold auditions for the Dance, Theatre, Vocal, and Media Arts/Filmmaking Departments on June 10. Tenth graders apply online by June 3.
The process for admission includes online application and virtual or onsite audition and interview. Accepted students attend their junior and senior years of high school at MSA. If you know of students currently in the 10th grade who might be interested in dance, theatre, vocal music, or filmmaking, please let them know about this opportunity.
MSA is a great option for local students who may want to still live at home but take advantage of all the educational opportunities offered. If you live within 25 miles of MSA, you can be a commuting student.
MSA is a public statewide 11th and 12th-grade residential high school located in Brookhaven on the historic Whitworth College campus. Annually, MSA enrolls approximately 140 students who meet and exceed the traditional Mississippi high school curriculum by receiving intensive instruction in dance, literary arts, theatre, visual arts, vocal music, and media arts/filmmaking.
MSA is a great school for those students who want to explore the arts in an extraordinary way. It also fills a special need for students with demonstrated talent that need a collegiate-level learning experience in the arts that is not widely available across our state.
In addition to MSA students consistently winning awards for their work on the state, regional, and national levels, the school holds the third highest ACT average in the state and the college scholarship opportunities for graduating seniors are vast.
