Important information about the auditions results release on Monday, February 11, 2019

Thank you to all who have auditioned for our classes for the 2019-2020 academic year! At this time of year especially, we wish we had more space so we could accept more artists! This is probably the hardest part of our job.

The results will be emailed out on Monday, February 11, 2019 around 3:00 pm.  All students who have auditioned will receive an email with important information and then will be instructed to go to the “BackPack” site (www.gcsbackpack.com) and log in to see their results.  Students who applied but did not audition will receive an email as well, but will receive “Application Declined.”  There will be three responses:  ACCEPT/DECLINE OFFER, WAITLISTED and APPLICATION DECLINED. 

  • ACCEPT/DECLINE OFFER :  If a student is accepted, they will need to reply by clicking on “OFFER ACCEPTED” or “OFFER DECLINED” by February 19, 2019.
  • WAITLISTEDThe “Wait List” will not be moved at all until after February 19, 2019, and any movement from that list is dependent of the number of Accepted candidates who opt to accept their slot.  This list is active until the beginning of school in August.  There will not be a numerical list of waitlisted students available, so we will not be able to answer questions about what number you are on the wait list. 
  • APPLICATION DECLINEDIf your response in the BackPack is “Application Declined,” you were not accepted this year, but you are more than welcomed and encouraged to apply again for the 2020-2021 school year.
Best of luck to all who applied and auditioned, and we are proud to be able to offer such a great artistic and academic program here in Greenville County Schools.
