College & Career Day 

Each fall, GSA alumni who are juniors and seniors in high school are invited to participate in our special College and Career Day.  Representatives from approximately 80 top national colleges gather at Louisville’s Youth Performing Arts School to share information about their schools with GSA students and their parents and to conduct auditions and interviews.

It's a concentrated and convenient way to "speed date" prospective colleges and universities. Alumni walk away from College and Career Day with new connections to a diverse range of schools and better ideas of what they want out of their secondary education experience. Some even receive direct scholarship offers that day.

The day will include a GSA orientation, college fair, lunch, auditions, reviews/interviews and call back interviews in some performing arts. We invite parents to attend the GSA orientation, college fair, lunch and special college workshops. Auditions and reviews are closed to parents and family members.  For student participants, there is a fee to attend the event; with the option to opt out.  (College and Career Day is free for parents and family members). 

Please keep the following in mind:


  • If you are a YPAS or Manual student auditioning or reviewing in your GSA art form, you need not register with GSA.
  • If you are a GSA student, you may only audition or review in your GSA art form. 

College and Career Day is on October 25, 2019!
