Rules for Private School and Home Educated Students

  • Private school students who attend a K-12 private school are eligible to attend solo festival, Area All-State, and All-State as long as their private school has paid its NYSSMA Member School Participation Fee. They must register through their private school.
  • Private school students who attend a private school which does not offer a HS diploma (i.e. a K-8 school) may attend solo festival if they register through their public school district. It is the public school teacher’s choice whether to register them or not.
  • Home educated students may attend solo festival if they register through the public school district in which they reside. It is the public school district’s choice whether to register them or not.
  • Home educated students may not apply for All-State or Area All-State. The applications clearly state, “Applicant must attend a NYSSMA Member New York State School.”
