By now, we hope you have learned about the rigorous academic program, pre-professional arts conservatories, and unique school culture found only at Orange County School of the Arts (OCSA). You are ready to apply!
After becoming familiar with the school’s various conservatories through an OCSA Preview Day, prospective students are invited to fill out an application and, for most conservatories, are required to participate in a Placement Activity. A public, random drawing (“lottery”) will be conducted by conservatory, grade level, and when applicable, concentration, to determine which students are offered admission.
Before getting started, please make sure that you thoroughly understand the Admissions Guidelines and have gathered all of the necessary materials. You will complete your application online and should be prepared to upload all requested materials along with your application.
Additional support is available for students, parents, or guardians who require translation in order to best understand our admissions processes, as well as for those who need technology assistance. Applicants who have received or are currently receiving special services are encouraged to request any accommodations needed to support them during the admissions process.
If you have questions, please read our Admissions FAQ. You may also contact our Admissions Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or 714.560.0900 ext. 5510.
