Preparing Your Interview
Preparing for your interview with The Kubert School.
Interviewing is a crucial element of the enrollment procedure at The Kubert School. During this time the student’s portfolio will be critiqued and students will undergo questioning of his/her goals, experiences and work ethic, which then will determine the acceptance or rejection to The Kubert School.
Interviews will be administered in person or online via Google Meet for applicants who cannot make it to the school due to distance. See the Portfolio Requirements page for more information.
