Step 1

Determine your eligibility to attend Dana Hills High School.  Please contact Capistrano Unified School District in order to determine this.

Our audition process is for placement in coursework only.  We welcome everyone interested in the arts!

Step 2

Call the SOCSA Office at (949)240-1994 and schedule an audition if you are planning to be in performing arts classes.  Your audition time may be in the spring before you attend.  All Dance department auditions are on March 4, 2019,  4-7 pm in the dance room at Dana Hills.  Please arrive on time dressed in appropriate dance attire with the proper shoes.  This is the only time you may audition for this department.  Theater auditions are on April 12 and May 10, but you must call and register for a time slot.  Music (vocal and instrumental) auditions will take place at the middle school (Marco Forster or Niguel Hills) in the spring.  If you are a student at a private or out of area school, please contact the SOCSA office for an audition time.


Step 3

Fill out a SOCSA Enrollment Form which is available in the SOCSA office or on the DHHS wesite under academies,  and submit with your donation attached.  Your classes will be assigned based upon auditions, in conjunction with your Academic Advisor.

Step 4

Begin attending classes and maintain a grade point average of at least 2.5 in order to remain a student in good standing, eligible to participate.
