California College of the Arts Pre-College Program



CCA's Pre-College Program enables high schoolers to earn three college credits while studying art, architecture, design or creative writing in an art school setting. As an immersion program, Pre-College requires students to attend class each morning and afternoon, then develop work outside of class time. In CCA's Bay Area setting, pupils sample college life as they develop portfolio pieces. Special activities, evening workshops and field trips enrich the program.
