UPDATED: Glassboro High School’s new Fine and Performing Arts Academy (FPA) invites parents of student musicians, vocalists, artists and dancers in grades 8-11 to an information session at 7 p.m. Oct. 5 in the Glassboro High School Library (550 Joseph Bowe Blvd., Glassboro).

Approved last spring by the state Department of Education as a school of choice program, the academy allows students to enroll from outside their home district without cost to their parents.

Students accepted into the program can take advanced coursework, earn college credits, and use practice and performance space at neighboring Rowan University, an academy partner. Let’s Dance Studio of Glassboro has signed on to expand the academy’s dance offerings in the coming year.

Students interested in auditioning in art, band, strings, choir and dance must notify their home district by Nov. 1. An “intent to participate” notification does not bind the student to a decision to participate.

The deadline to apply is Dec. 1, with auditions to be scheduled throughout that month. Notices of acceptance will be sent to parents and sending districts by Jan. 4.

Glassboro High School was one of 56 schools statewide selected for the Interdistrict School of Choice Program, which began this school year.

More information on the Fine and Performing Arts Academy is available by contacting Mary Greening at 856-652-2700, ext. 71242 or mgreening@glassboroschools.us. Information also is available on the Glassboro Schools web site
