In-Person Interview

Once we have received the Application Packet, we will arrange an In-Person interview with the whole family. During the interview we will talk about the Expedition Academy Santa Cruz program and what it means for the whole family to join our community.

Student Audition

All student applicants must submit an audition as part of the application process. Using one piece of paper (8 ½ x 11) and any implements of creativity you choose, tell us “Who are You?”. The only limitation in this project is the single sheet of paper, other tools: pens, pencils, paints, glue, scissors, tape, etc. are completely acceptable and up to the individual. The completed creation needs to be submitted by mail or email (digital photo) to complete the student audition requirement. Here are some guiding questions to consider in your submission:

  • Who are you? - What do you want us to know about you?

  • What passions, hobbies or interests do you have that you really want to share?

  • What are your superpowers?
