Midyear Transfer Students

We are accepting applications for the 2023-2024 school year.

Please contact Director of Enrollment Management Amanda LePard at alepard@chicagoartsacademy.org or call 312.421.0202 ext. 1151 to learn more about your options at The Academy. Tuition Assistance is not available for midyear transfer students at this time.

Transfer and International Students

While the curriculum is designed as a four-year program, The Academy accepts a select number of international students considering 9th or 10th grade each school year. Please contact the Director of Enrollment Management Amanda LePard first to discuss your options and the admissions process.

At this time, The Academy does not provide boarding options; however, The Academy partners with Cornerstone Education, a reputable student homestay agency program for international students from China and local students in need of homestay options.

All international students must live with a parent or legal guardian appointed under the Illinois courts and/or be under the care of their international service/organization, regardless of legal age.

Once you have visited us virtually and submitted the online application with a non-refundable $150 application fee, we will coordinate and confirm your audition date. After you advance through the audition, we review your Academic Paperwork. All transfer and international applicants will have an in-person or phone interview, along with the parent interview. Tuition Assistance is not available for international students at this time.
