Searching for colleges


After you’ve talked with your guidance counselor, family, and friends, you probably have a wish list of what you want in a college. Before you start your search, take time to prioritize the items on that list. What’s most important to you? An urban campus? Small class sizes? Lots of opportunities to perform? Or is it most important that you stay close to home or within a certain price range? Know what you need and what you can live without.

Then use EdTA’s College Theatre Directory to filter your searches by all of those variables and more among hundreds of theatre schools in our database. If you see something you like, you can check if they’re affiliated with the Acceptd college application network. If so, you can directly audition and apply as soon as you’re ready.

College and university representatives can create or update profiles of their theatre programs on the administrator’s login page.

Also have a look at some of the other resources with information about schools and theatre programs. And don’t forget to get advice from students who have been through the process.
