Dear Potential String Project Families and Lottery Hopefuls:

We are experiencing a slight delay with the start of our 2021-2022 Lottery because of the virtual format of beginning our school year. The lottery will officially open up by October!

Remember, you can enter the lottery any time between October and April. The time at which you enter does not affect the likelihood of being selected (selections are random).

We appreciate your understanding, patience, and flexibility!

Yearly Calendar Update

Our 2020-2021 yearly calendar has been updated on the “Calendar” page.

Please note that our fall semester will be conducted virtually. While we hope to resume in-person teaching in the spring, this is tentative and the spring semester is subject to change.

Note: Instrument returns and rentals will be conducted this month.

  • August 15: Instrument Return for families not returning to SP
  • August 22: Instrument Rental day for New families
  • August 29: Instrument Sizing day for Returning families & Rental day for Junior Cadets

Summer Update

We are getting ready for another year with String Project! A few announcements:

  • The lottery and enrollment for the 2020-2021 have closed and all families who have been selected from the lottery have been emailed. The program is now at capacity, and we thank everyone who entered. If you were not selected this year we encourage you to re-apply for the 2021-2022 school year! The lottery will open up again mid-September and will be posted on our website.
  • Current families will begin receiving weekly updates every Thursday. Be on the lookout for instructions on Instrument Returns and Rentals.
  • Our fall semester will be conducted virtually. This is to ensure the safety of all families and teachers. We hope to begin teaching in-person in the Spring, but this is yet to be determined. We look forward to seeing everyone on Zoom!
