How to Apply

If you are applying to Snow Farm for the first time, you will need to write a short personal statement and submit one letter of recommendation from a teacher, counselor, coach, or other non-family adult who knows you well. Letters of recommendation can be uploaded with the application or emailed directly from the recommender to

If you are a returning student, you will be asked to write an artist's statement, but you do NOT need to submit another letter of recommendation. 

Applications are submitted in two parts. You will fill out a form (scroll down to APPLY button), and then you will be directed to a webpage to create an account and pay a deposit (scholarship applicants must complete the full process but will not be asked for payment). All students must complete both parts of the application before it will be reviewed. 

To be placed on a waitlist, fill out the complete application. You will not be asked to pay a deposit. Plans change and we see often see movement in enrollments until mid-April. Have hope!
