Journal of School Counseling, v17 n10 2019
School counselors are a primary source of college and career information for students and families, including students interested in pursuing a degree in fine arts. The admission process to fine arts programs can be complex and involve multiple steps; however, providing this guidance is clearly in line with the role of school counselor, as defined by the American School Counselor Association (ASCA) model for school counseling. This article provides a guide for the fine arts admission process, including finding the right fit, academic requirements, financial assistance, and general strategies. Guidance for specific disciplines such as dance, music, theater, and visual arts are provided. The article includes two appendices of resources that counselors may share with students and families.
