The deadline to submit all applications is Friday, Feb. 26, 2016.

Corey and Jones Fine Arts Dual Language Kindergarten application | Español
Elementary students have the opportunity to learn Spanish, Mandarin, visual arts, music (choral, strings and piano), dance and theater. Both fine arts instruction and second language acquisition help students increase cognitive abilities, improve thinking and verbal skills, enhance motor skills and problem-solving ability, and improve SAT scores. Application open to incoming kindergarten students.

Jones Academy (Grades 2-6) application
Elementary students in grades 2 - 6 have the opportunity to attend fine arts and foreign language classes more than a typical elementary student. They will not be placed in the dual language program, however.

Parents must attend an information session for the Fine Arts/Dual Language Academies (kindergarten only) before students are eligible for admission.

Corey Academy of Fine Arts and Dual Language - 6-7 p.m. on Thu, Dec. 10, Corey cafeteria
