RPS 205 offers a comprehensive K-12 grade arts education that is based on the National Standards for the Arts. For those students in grades 6-12 needing more in-depth arts experiences, RPS 205 provides the Creative and Performing Arts Program (CAPA). The CAPA program is offered at two sites, one for middle school students and the second for high school students. CAPA gives each student a unique real-life experience in one or more of the fine arts disciplines: Dance, Instrumental Music, Theatre-Tech and Media Arts, Vocal Music and Visual Arts. Acceptance into the program is by audition.
Regular auditions for the 2019-2020 school year have been completed. There will be one summer Audition in June for limited remaining seats and waitlist spots. Stay tuned for information and the link to register, which will be posted in early April.
High school notification letters have been mailed to the address families listed on the audition registration form. Middle School auditions were completed on February 2, and letters should be received by mid- March. The original target date has been slightly adjusted due to weather cancellations.
