Immerse yourself in an inspiring, creative community.
Make friends. Make art.
June 24-July 19, 2019
At CCA’s Pre-College Program, you’ll join a diverse group of creative thinkers and makers that have one thing in common: the pursuit of purposeful work.
Our setting is CCA’s lush Oakland campus, where studio-focused, college-level courses help you push beyond concepts to portfolio-ready pieces.
Our backdrop is the San Francisco Bay Area, home to powerhouse brands, remarkable tech companies, and world-class museums—all easily reachable by BART train or rideshare.
If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be in art school, this is your time to grow as an individual and take your artwork to the next level.
The program is designed for students who will have completed their sophomore, junior, or senior year of high school by summer 2019. Students must be at least 15 by June 2019 and not older than 18 to attend.
The online application for summer 2019 will be available on January 9, 2019.
