We are built from you, for you. We do this by asking about and learning from the authentic X-Shaped YOU, your beautiful story, your unique strengths/talents, powerful skills (not just related to school) and your stance being you in the world; all the things that will make our school great!

Tell us what YOU want us to know, not what you think we want to know. We ask you to dig deep into why you do what you do, how you're going to make yourself useful to the world, and what DSX can do to help you realize that purpose. This information will allow us and you to understand how DSX can best support you through your educational journey at DSX and beyond.  We can't wait to see how truly awesome you all are.This information will allow us and you to understand how DSX can best support you through your educational journey at DSX and beyond. 

Once we have received your responses, we will contact your parent(s), guardian(s), or mentor that you are applying to DSX.

  • Please feel free to include any videos, pictures, songs, poems or drawings that will help us get to know you better. 
  • Include links (pasted into the response) and/or photos (email to David at david@designschoolx.org) of your previous work when possible.

It's OK if you don't have a passion. A school's job is to help find one by simply starting with something you're curious about.
