About the Academic Program

To learn more about Orange County School of the Arts’ rigorous academic program, please visit our Academic Overview page.

OCSA provides a rigorous college-preparatory academic program and adheres to the California State Mandated Requirements for High School Graduation. While the school’s faculty and staff are committed to supporting the educational needs of each and every student, the students themselves are expected to make a commitment to their academics as well as their conservatory classes. In our experience, students who struggle academically in a traditional school setting will likely have trouble succeeding in our extended school day. Although no minimum GPA or other academic criteria is required for admission, any student who does not complete OCSA's minimum set of requirements for graduation by the end of their senior year will not be eligible to graduate.

Upon being offered enrollment, please be prepared to provide:

  • A photocopy of the child’s valid Birth Certificate, a photocopy of valid/unexpired US Passport, a photocopy of valid/unexpired out of country passport, or Visa/Green Card, or any other equivalent document
  • 10th - 12th grade students: (1) complete high school transcripts and (2) their current progress grades
  • 7th - 9th grade students: (1) final 2018-2019 report card and (2) all current 2019-2020 grades available 
  • IEP or 504 Accommodation Plan

Newly Enrolled Students cannot apply to a grade level above the standard grade level for their age or apply to "skip" a grade level.
