Thinking About Changing Your Major

Thinking About Changing Your Major?? (Current 4th - 7th Grade Students Only!)

Every year we have a few students who discover an interest in a SCAPA arts area other than their current major.   As we get closer to audition time, I would like to take this opportunity to share with everyone the procedure for changing your major at SCAPA Bluegrass. 

    • Any student who is currently enrolled in SCAPA Bluegrass may apply for a Change of Major.
    • All major change auditions will attempt to take place within 10 days of submission of the major change application and, if approved, will go into effect for the next school year.
    • No major changes will be granted during the school year.  This places any student at an unfair disadvantage by going into a class weeks or months behind the rest of the class.
    • The Major Change Audition Application is online on the SCAPA Bluegrass website.  The link can be found within the “Students” tab.
      • The Major Change Audition Application includes sections that must be completed by the student and sections that must be completed by the parent/guardian.
    • The due date for all Major Change Applications is April 9, 2024. (NO EXCEPTIONS OR EXTENSIONS!!!)
    • Students may select only one area in which to audition for a major change.
    • The auditions for potential major changes will take place in April 2024.  You will be contacted regarding the specific details via email.
    • After the Major Change audition takes place, you will receive written notification as to the outcome (Approved or Not Approved).  
    • If your Major Change is APPROVED, the SCAPA counselor will be notified so that they can make the appropriate changes to your schedule.  If your Major Change is NOT APPROVED, then you will remain in your current arts major for the upcoming school year. 
  • IMPORTANT: Should your child be accepted into the requested arts area, they will no longer be receiving gifted services/instruction in the former arts area.  When completing the Major Change Application, parents must initial this statement indicating that you understand the potential change in gifted services/instruction.  Your child will not forfeit gifted status in the previous arts area but will be selecting to no longer receive gifted services/instruction in the previous arts area.  
  • IMPORTANT: The audition requirements are posted on the SCAPA Website (/fs/pages/24107) and are the same as any new student wishing to attend SCAPA.
