Foundation Advisory Board

The mission of the Orange County School of the Arts Foundation Advisory Board is to provide leadership and guidance to the Orange County School of the Arts Foundation in regard to accomplishing its long-term strategic plan. 

The Orange County School of the Arts Foundation has established six long-term strategic goals that will ensure the school’s thriving future.  These goals include plans to provide financial assistance to students with demonstrated financial need; enrich arts and academic instruction through state-of-the-art technology, equipment, and media resources; enhance arts and academic instruction through enriched curriculum; promote excellence in arts and academic instruction through professional development; provide arts exploration, enrichment, and awareness to students throughout Southern California; and provide state-of-the-art instructional facilities for Orange County School of the Arts students. 

The Advisory Board is comprised of business, community, arts and educational leaders who bring unique knowledge with respect to their experience and expertise which complement the knowledge and skills of the Foundation Board of Directors.  These esteemed professionals have joined together to form two committees that work cohesively as part of the Advisory Board; Community Partners and Strategic Partners. 

Community Partners serve as ambassadors of the school and provide expertise as needed to assist in developing and implementing the Foundation’s long-term strategic plan.  Strategic Partners work in partnership with school faculty and staff to further develop the school’s instructional program through the creation of meaningful partnerships with Southern California leading arts organizations and premier colleges and universities.
