College Acceptance & Matriculation

College Acceptance & Matriculation

Orange County School of the Arts (OCSA) is dedicated to providing its students with ample support to prepare them for any passion they choose to pursue post graduation. The goal is for students to understand the opportunities available to them, equip them for who they aspire to be in the future, and help them to find their own unique path to success. OCSA graduates advance to a wide variety of colleges, universities, and trade schools to continue their studies both within and beyond the arts.

In 2022, 98% of OCSA’s graduating class was accepted into institutions of higher education and they collectively were offered more than $15 million in scholarships.

More specifically:

  • 82% are attending a four-year college program.
  • 11% are attending a two-year college or conservatory program.
  • 7% are heading directly into the workforce or taking 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.
