Thank you for applying to Caldwell Elementary Arts Academy. We provide the opportunity to enhance the whole child through the arts. For families invested in the arts, we foster a learning environment where all art forms can mature in a unique curriculum format and performance development program. Please join us for a Magnet Preview Night on Thursday, January 25th from 5:30-7:00 to learn more about what Caldwell Arts Academy has to offer!
Please take a moment to read the entire application. Along with general information about your student, there is a section on Family Interest Survey. As a magnet campus, we expect our families to have genuine investment in promoting the arts.
In addition, the application process comprises a performance audition for the four major art forms. A arts panel score each art form on an independent rubric. Your student score is then added together to make up a total score that is worth fifty percent of the total application score.
Any out of district or incoming kindergarten applicant will need to set up an appointment for your student to complete a student achievement screener. Please call the Caldwell office for more information.
Please note only completed applications will be considered for placement. Incomplete applications will not be accepted nor recorded as being returned.
A panel of Caldwell Staff, Administration, District Personal and Community Arts Partners will evaluate each section independently. All applications will receive a total score. Final acceptance is based application ranking and available space in each grade level. Please know we receive far more applications than space available for students. In accordance with district procedure, priority is given to siblings of current magnet students if all criteria is met.
