Scholarships & Enrollment
Scholarship Audition Deadline:
January 17, 2024
Audition links will be live
October 31, 2023.
Students interested in Fine Arts Scholarships must submit a Bishop McNamara Admissions Application. An audition for any scholarship does not positively or negatively effect the student's consideration for admittance to Bishop McNamara High School.
Scholarship auditions occur virtually through SlideRoom, an online portal. Please click here for more information.
Scholarship results will be announced in Admissions Office decision packets sent at the end of February.
We are so lucky to have many wonderful and talented students audition for our programs. Each year we get approximately 300 applicants. Please understand a few things:
- These scholarships are merit, potential, and performance-based. They do not take financial need into consideration. Applicants are also welcome to separately apply for Financial Aid.
- If a student is awarded one of our very competitive scholarships, Congratulations! Please know that receiving and accepting the scholarship is contingent upon a student registering and participating with the program for up to 4 years.
- If a student does not receive a Fine Arts scholarship, we still want to welcome them into our program, provided they are accepted to BMHS and decide to attend. Our Fine Arts programs boast an enrollment of over 500 students every year.
- Not all students with an interest in the Arts need to audition or apply for a Scholarship. There is another round of auditions and course selections in the spring for students with little or no experience in an art form. We do encourage any and all students with experience to consider auditioning, but we ask that those with little or no experience wait until students are admitted and registered for 9th grade courses.
For more information regarding a specific art form, please see the links on this page or feel free to contact one of our dedicated members of the Fine Arts Faculty & Staff.
