Join us in celebrating 35 years of artistic and academic excellence by supporting Orange County School of the Arts through

At OCSA, providing a supportive, inclusive, and safe environment for our students is one of our highest priorities. OCSA students work incredibly hard, putting in long hours in the classroom and after school in rehearsals, doing homework, installing exhibitions, participating in performances, and volunteering for community service projects. 

OCSA’s distinctive urban campus does not currently have a flexible, central outdoor location that can accommodate a wide range of activities: a place for our students to gather, relax, study, collaborate, rehearse, perform, exercise, and share meals.

Our students deserve a campus environment that matches the commitment and passion they bring to OCSA.

Your generous contribution to this special campaign will help create a welcoming Student Commons on our campus.

THE STUDENT COMMONS WILL INCLUDE:

  • A welcoming, tree-lined campus entrance

  • A central landscaped lawn

  • A flexible outdoor performance and event space

  • A variety of benches for comfortable seating

  • Decorative fencing and a gate to surround the entrance and park space

  • A grand exterior staircase from the lawn to the upper-level OCSA café terrace

  • An enclosed student study lounge

  • Three contemporary coffee and snack bar locations

  • A 10th Street space designed for student activities and gatherings

  • Several wall and street murals to artistically enhance school facilities

  • An improved senior parking lot

Our campaign goal to complete the project is $5 million, and we plan to break ground in the summer of 2022.
