CSA Junior Faculty Program

Now accepting applications for 2019/20!

What is the CSA Junior Faculty Program?

The CSA Junior Faculty Program (or JFac) is an educational program in which students gain valuable work experience while furthering their skills in the arts. Students will receive training in communication, child development, CSA curriculum, time management and organizational skills. JFac members receive one-on-one mentorship with experienced teachers and develop skills that translate not just in the studio, but in their future roles in college and the work force. It is important to our faculty that our program not only prepare Team members for their role at CSA, but foster a love of the arts and develop leadership skills.

We are excited to offer the opportunity for young artists to apprentice and work in the field of arts education!

JFac members play a vital role in the studio by assisting CSA staff in classes,

rehearsals and lessons. JFac members are expected to maintain attendance in

the classes in which they assist as well as their own CSA commitments.
