If you are entering grades 9-12 you can STILL be a part of the SPAE community! The Counselor In Training Application looks a little different this year.  Applications are due by April 24th. Due to the high number of applicants, late applications will not be accepted. Please read the following:

Dear Leland and Gray Summer Performing Arts Explorations
Counselor-In-Training applicant!

We, the SPAE staff are SO excited at the prospect of adding you to our terrific team this summer-for the BEST SUMMER OF SPAE YET! The role of the Counselor-In-Training has evolved greatly over the past 7 years of SPAE and we are thrilled to be able to continue this opportunity for high schoolers in our community. CITs are involved with SPAE in a wide variety of ways. The directors work to take place you in areas highlighting your strengths while providing you with opportunities to grow in all areas of the arts.

We’d like you to write us a letter about why you think you should be a Counselor In Training at SPAE. While there is no length requirement for the letter we are looking for you to really describe to us why this job is important to you. The most likely means you will need to write more than one sentence for each item. At the minimum, be sure that your letter addresses the following items:

  1. Why would you make a great Counselor In Training?
  2. What do you envision the role of a CIT to be?
  3. What are challenges you’ve come across at SPAE? What ideas do you have to make those things less challenging?
  4. Why do we work hard to build a community at SPAE from the very first day?
  5. What is your spirit animal?

Please address your letters to Abby, Emily, and Karlie and email to by April 24th (due to a competitive pool of applicants no late letters will be accepted).

Thank you!

Your SPAE team,
Abby, Karlie, and Emily
