As one of the premier arts schools in the nation, the Orange County School of the Arts embraces and encourages artistic creativity and academic excellence. Serving grades 7-12, this innovative school provides a unique nurturing environment focused on individual growth, opportunity, and diversity.

The Orange County School of the Arts was established in 1987 and is the place for aspiring young artists to refine their skills and flourish in one of thirteen pre-professional arts conservatories. 

Based on the belief that creative artistry is fueled by intellectual insight, the Orange County School of the Arts provides a rigorous college preparatory academic program that produces high achieving, motivated scholars. 

The school's dual arts and academic programs produce creative students capable of thinking “outside the box” in real world and scholastic endeavors.  These programs help students to be successful in today’s challenging and competitive marketplace and ensure their acceptance into higher education.

Acceptance to the Orange County School of the Arts is based on a review of the student’s application, academic records, and an audition. Students with a passionate interest in the arts are encouraged to apply. Due to the high number of student applicants from throughout the United States, at this time we are not currently accepting applications from international students. 

The school is a tuition-free, donation-dependent, public charter school. No student is admitted or denied based on financial capacity.
