DSA Application 2021


Important Information

Parents and students are encouraged to choose schools wisely based on the students’ aptitudes and strengths, bearing in mind the schools’ academic and non-academic requirements, and the programmes available to develop the area of talent.


Students who are successfully admitted to the school via DSA are expected to honour their commitment to the school, and participate in the activities related to the talent they are selected for throughout their course of study in YTSS.


With the suspension of some National School Games (NSG) and Singapore Youth Festival Arts Presentation in primary schools due to COVID-19 situation, we will take this into consideration in our selection process.


Parents may refer to the selection guidelines stated below in the DSA application. However, meeting all the criteria does not guarantee the student will be shortlisted/given an offer.


Talent Categories


YTSS welcomes prospective students who demonstrate talent, passion and ability in our various talent categories. Successful applicants will join YTSS in January 2022. Generally, students who are keen to apply should possess strong level of motivation and commitment to the talent areas, and in other curricular and co-curricular activities offered by the school. While achievement level and mastery in their chosen area is key, we are also scouting for students who display strong potential in their areas of choice. Our DSA talents should also have the mind-set and learning disposition to cope well with other aspects of school life in YTSS.


     Students admitted into Yishun Town Secondary School via DSA will have the opportunity to be trained and guided by professional coaches, instructors and experienced CCA Teachers in-charge. Nurturing each individual’s talent area, the school seeks to provide every DSA student with quality programmes, activities and opportunities to represent the school in competitions or public performances at various platforms. Besides development in their talent area, a teacher mentor will also be assigned to guide each DSA student, providing them with the necessary supervision in their academic performance.  Hence, every DSA student will be able to excel in their endeavours in YTSS.
