Posted on Jun. 20 2019 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
News Blog Category - News Any family with a student new to MCS should attend onsite registration, which is set from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. July 23 and 24 at Marion High School. (Registration for all grades will be at that location. Staff from all school buildings will be available on those days at Marion High School.) Families can come at their convenience any time during those hours.

Please enter at Door 4 on the 26th Street side of the building. Parking is available in the parking lot on the east side of the building. Please do not park in the circle off 26th Street. 

Those with students who are new to MCS (including kindergartners) should plan to attend our onsite registration days to provide needed documentation and information, including proof of residence (such as a recent utility bill with your name and address), and the name and contact information for the school your student most recently attended, along with any health/allergy information.

Any MCS family is also welcome to attend onsite registration, but is encouraged to use the online registration option if possible. Online registration is already open; click here for instructions.

Any family with students who were enrolled at an MCS school last year, including Little Giants Preschool students who will be in kindergarten this year, as well as any families who attended Kindergarten Roundup in the spring, can use the online registration system.
 
(Computer access and assistance with passwords or other issues will be available at Marion High School during onsite registration days.)
 
Textbook fees and deposits can also be paid online as part of the registration process, or at the onsite registration days (where you can avoid the online payment processing fee).

Info meeting set for CSA Arts Academy (6/24)

Posted on Jun. 18 2019 by Patricia Gibson, Communications Director
News Blog Category - News Marion Community School of the Arts (CSA) will be holding an informational meeting on the CSA Arts Academy, a partnership with Marion Community Schools, at 5:30 p.m. June 24 at CSA, 305 S. Adams St., Marion. This meeting is for anyone who would like more information on the program; it is not required of those already enrolled in the programming.

The CSA Arts Academy was formed in 2016 as an exclusive cooperative agreement between Marion Community Schools and Marion CSA to provide a unique opportunity for students who are pursuing intensive, pre-professional arts training: an educational program that can be tailored to their needs, combining online and on-site academics with support from MCS staff, along with extra-curricular opportunities.

CSA Arts Academy students are enrolled as Marion Community Schools students, and they are connected with a teacher of record for their self-guided online courses. This means that they have resources not normally available through most online learning options, which most often put the burden on the student to keep up with lessons, and to find additional external help if they struggle with coursework. From one-on-one discussions with the teacher, to tutoring options, to help with scheduling and more, CSA Arts Academy students have help that other online programs just can’t offer.

In addition, though, CSA Arts Academy students have the option to take honors and Advanced Placement and dual credit classes on-site at Marion High School, and to participate in co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. MHS offers dozens of early college credit opportunities, all of which are open to CSA Arts Academy students. And MHS has dozens of athletic teams and student organizations that are also all open to participation by CSA Arts Academy students.

The CSA Arts Academy, in cooperation with Marion Community Schools, truly offers the best of both worlds to its students: high quality pre-professional arts training and a high quality academic program, along with the traditional high school experiences — things like being inducted into honor societies, cheering with fellow students at the big game, going to prom, and even participating in graduation ceremonies — that pre-professional arts students often have to sacrifice to make their intensive arts training possible.

The program is a fast-paced, intensive program best suited for high performing, serious pre-professional arts students. It provides flexibility to students participating in pre-professional arts education including, but not limited to, the CSA Theatre compANY and CSA’s Dancers Edge Company, providing high quality academics while still allowing them to dedicate the time to the training, traveling and auditioning required at this advanced level of study.

Anyone who would like more information about this outstanding opportunity for young artists should plan to attend this informational meeting, 5:30 p.m. June 24 at CSA, 305 S. Adams St., Marion.
