The High School of Art and Design is a CTE school with multiple admissions programs. For admission to any of these, students have to present a virtual portfolio and participate in the audition process.


Due to COVID 19, admission will this year be based solely on the Audition and Portfolios of applicants.


At this time we are able to offer guidance in preparing your portfolios. As soon as we have greater clarity from the office of High School Enrollment regarding the virtual auditions for the school year 2020-2021, we will update our website with the information.


Please review the information in the FAQ’s to familiarize yourselves with the school.


You can also view our OPEN HOUSE segment on the website which is available 24/7 to interested students and families.

Our Spring Arts Festival, yearly art show, is also available to peruse to get a better idea about the art that is made in the classes. This work showcase the mostly the work students completed when the school was closed during COVID 19.
