AN ADDITIONAL PATH TO ADMISSION
At over 900 students and 31 faculty members, AMPA is the largest magnet center in LAUSD. While the most popular path to admission is through the accumulation of magnet points using Choices released in October of each year, there is an additional path to admission.
For students who are concerned that they fall short of the required magnet points for admission, we offer auditions in specific disciplines in the month of January prior to the semester of matriculation. Students who place in this process will be notified within 4 weeks if they have earned a spot in the upcoming Fall class.

AUDITIONS FOR SHOWS
Once you are a student in AMPA, you can audition for shows. Also, at the end of every year, students audition for placement for the following year in their performance courses.
Auditions have already been completed for the fall semester.
