Admission to RCA
Admission to the Regional Center for the Arts is open to Fairfield County high schools students with an interest in the performing arts. RCA is a public school of choice for families in Bridgeport, Darien, Easton/Region #9, Fairfield, Greenwich, Monroe, New Canaan, Norwalk, Ridgefield, Shelton, Stamford, Stratford, Trumbull, Weston, Westport, and Wilton. We also accept students from school outside of our region.
RCA students earn academic credits for our program. Grades are sent to the home high school quarterly.
Open houses are held in November and February for students to tour the building and meet the staff. You may meet with the principal to discuss RCA as an option for your student. Please call our office at 203-365-8857 to schedule an appointment.
We also encourage the families of prospective students to attend any of our performances (see calendar page).
Applications for the 2017-18 school year are closed. Students who applied will be informed of their acceptance by letter in late May, and will have a week to notify RCA of their intent to enroll.
All school districts cap their student enrollment at RCA. In most cases our potential enrollment from a district exceeds the cap. In that case we conduct a lottery of prospective students, and those who are not offered a seat will be placed on a waiting list. If our overall potential enrollment exceeds our program capacity, we will conduct a lottery in that case as well.
