2018 Conference Host:  Orange County School of the Arts (OCSA)

Arts Schools Network is proud to partner with Orange County School of the Arts (OCSA) for this year's annual conference. Orange County School of the Arts is located in central Orange County, approximately 5 miles from John Wayne Airport, 6 miles from Disneyland, 14 miles from beautiful beaches, and 4 miles from Chapman University.  Located in the arts district of Santa Ana with a rich culture, local galleries, restaurants, and night spots, make this an incredible draw for this year's conference. 


The award-winning Orange County School of the Arts (OCSA) provides a creative, challenging, and nurturing environment that offers bright and talented students unparalleled preparation for higher education and a profession in the arts.

Founded in 1987 by visionary educator Dr. Ralph Opacic, OCSA has grown from a small after-school arts program into one of the premier arts schools in the nation. This innovative public charter school embraces and encourages artistic creativity and academic excellence, and produces lifelong learners who matriculate to top tier colleges, universities, and conservatory programs.

Orange County School of the Arts serves a diverse student body and is accessible to all students, regardless of their socioeconomic standing. The school is tuition free and donation dependent, and no student is admitted or denied based on financial capacity. OCSA is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
