Holly Catania

"Orange County School of the Arts is a special place to learn, grow and develop your skills. Being surrounded by such passionate and talented students and faculty inspired me to reach for my dreams. OCSA’s creative environment prepared me for my career with Walt Disney Imagineering as I work with a diverse group of Imagineers to design and build Disney theme parks around the world."

Justice Smith

“OCSA taught me a lot of what I know. I don’t think I would be where I am if it wasn’t for this school. Being in class every day and working that muscle over and over really helped give me the confidence I needed to go out and work.”

Dr. Melissa Yates

“At first glance, it may seem that medicine is the furthest thing possible from the theatre. I would argue that OCSA was the best training that I ever received… The ability to embrace diversity, to work as a team and to learn empathy cannot be taught … But it can be further developed. That is the gift that OCSA gave me … I will forever cherish it.”
