Charter Regularly Fills Wait Lists & Encourages Early Inquiries

Toledo, OH- Toledo School for the Arts is pleased to announce an early start to their application season this year, with the online 2015-16 application going live this Friday, October 3rd.

“Each year our waiting lists grow- in some grade levels we have upwards of 40 potential students holding on for a spot. To accommodate this interest that grows exponentially every year, we’ve decided to kick-off our Enrollment Season by opening the application site in October,” explained Martin Porter, TSA’s Director.

On Friday, October 3rd TSA will hold their regularly scheduled First Friday; a mini-open house with gallery openings, a performance of works in progress, and student Ambassador-led school tours. During the event, which begins at 9am in the school’s Gallerie 333, staff will be on-hand with enrollment information, ready to answer the questions of potential students and their families. First Friday events are free, open to the public and include light breakfast refreshments.
