Clubs at the Orange County School of the Arts are just one of the many ways our diverse student body can express their interests, and connect with peers who share them. With over 120 clubs ranging from community service to popular culture, OCSA students have the opportunity to join existing clubs, or start their own at the beginning of the fall and spring semesters.

Join an Existing Club!

To join a club, attend Club Rush at the beginning of each semester. If you missed Club Rush, don't worry; you can check out all the clubs that OCSA offers below. Clubs are listed by meeting day and club type to make finding the perfect club easier!

Start a New Club

Don't see a club that matches your interests?  Start your own! 

  • All new clubs must begin at the start of either the fall or spring semester.  Clubs may not be formed mid-semester.
  • Stay tuned to Art Attack at the beginning of each semester for more details.
