When can we apply?  Applications are accepted throughout the summer.  Deadline for applications is August 1.  Early application is advised.

Is there a place for my child if they are not interested in performing?  Yes, students can work in technical theatre, music, writing and other areas.

I am concerned about my child being able to handle the commitment of school and other extracurricular activities.  How do students in WINGS make their schedules work?  School comes first and students must sign a contract with their parents/guardians to ensure they will keep up their grades.  Students can be as involved as they wish.  There are many performing opportunities.  WINGS staff encourage them to be selective and not do all the activities.
