June 19–July 19, 2021
Applications have closed for the 2021 summer.
Chautauqua Schools of Performing and Visual Arts are monitoring the continually changing nature of the COVID-19 virus very closely and taking the appropriate precautions.
At this time we are hopeful for a four-week, on-grounds experience this summer. While we have created a plan that would allow us to host students, it contains a number of assumptions because we have not yet received clear guidance from New York State as to what restrictions will be placed on programs like ours. We expect that guidance to come sometime in April and if the state allows it, we hope to finalize and share safety plans for in-person sessions by early May.
In order to provide the safest environment in our facilities, we will be reducing our programs both in artistic and educational offerings. We will also be reducing our student body to accommodate single occupancy rooms in our residence halls.

Chautauqua offers large scholarships, most covering tuition and many covering the full cost. In 2020 we awarded scholarship to 100% of the students enrolled in the voice program.
