Each year, OCSA graduates are recruited by the nation’s top universities and arts conservatory programs, including Harvard University, Yale University, Juilliard, Stanford University, New York University, Columbia University, Boston Conservatory, Berklee College of Music, Art Center College of Design, California Institute of the Arts, University of Southern California, and many more.

In 2016, ninety nine percent (99%) of OCSA’s graduating class was accepted into institutions of higher education.

More specifically:

  • Seventy-nine percent (79%) ultimately attended a four-year college program.

  • Twenty percent (20%) attended a two-year college or conservatory program.

  • One percent (1%) went directly into the workforce or took a gap year.

Our student artists apply to and enroll in colleges/universities that reflect their individual interests and strengths. OCSA continues to launch the careers of some of today’s most successful artists, academicians, and entrepreneurs.
