Explore the admission process

Our admission process is standard for charter schools in Texas. Admission to Texas School of the Arts (TeSA) is determined through a random-selection lottery process. If you are a family living in one of the many eligible ISDs we serve, you may submit a student application for enrollment.

The TeSA Admission Lottery is now closed. Please check back in the fall for information on admissions for the 2018-2019 school year.
