The audition process for entering the 2021-2022 school year will be adjusted due to COVID-19 safety concerns. We are committed to providing an equitable, safe process. The adjusted process will have students submit their audition online. Applicants will not come to the Buffalo Academy for Visual & Performing Arts for their audition. The audition will be a modified version of our regular process. Fill out the form above to be notified when the audition requirements and the application portal is open.
