MAIL YOUR REGISTRATION MATERIALS TO:

Summer Atelier
Office of Special Programs
California College of the Arts
5212 Broadway
Oakland CA 94618-1426

Applicants are enrolled on a first-come, first-served basis. Because we anticipate the program will fill, we encourage you to send in your application form as soon as possible. Confirmation will be sent within one week of the application's receipt.

SCHOLARSHIPS

Scholarships are available in a limited number for applicants who have significant financial need.

Because we anticipate that the Summer Atelier will fill and only limited scholarship money is available, we strongly recommend that only applicants from families who could not otherwise afford to attend the program apply for a scholarship. Spaces are reserved in the program for scholarship recipients.

Applicants should check the appropriate box on the registration form that indicates a desire for scholarship consideration. Be sure to send the following materials with the application form and high school transcript:

  • a copy of the household's 2015 federal income tax return filed by a parent(s) or guardian(s)
  • a statement by the parent(s) or guardian(s) that describes the family's financial need for the scholarship, and the applicant's interest in the program
  • name and phone number of a current teacher or counselor

SCHOLARSHIP DEADLINE

Scholarship applicants must submit all their materials by Monday, April 11. Award notifications will be made by April 15.

ATTENDANCE POLICY

Summer Atelier participants are expected to be present for the entire program, barring illness. This means that participants will be in class for the full duration of the program. If another activity (e.g., soccer practice) or planned family vacation conflicts with a full-time commitment, please do not register for the program.

The Summer Atelier is an intensive immersion in art, with six hours of instruction daily. Students are expected to arrive to all classes on time. Late arrivals and early departures are disruptive to the program and are not acceptable.

ABSENSES

If your child will miss a class due to illness, please notify our office at 510.594.3710. Thank you very much for this courtesy.

CONDUCT POLICY

California College of the Arts is committed to offering a high-quality Summer Atelier. In the event that a participant's behavior is deemed disruptive to the experience of other participants, by either one or more of the participant's instructors or by the Dean of Special Programs, the college reserves the right to withdraw the participant from the program. No refund will be issued.

HEALTH / MEDICATIONS

Since CCA, the family, and the student all want the YASP experience to be a successful one, some parents have found it useful to inform us in advance of any learning disabilities/differences or health issues. If this applies to your Young Artist, we encourage you to let us know the specifics at least one week before the start of the program. In your letter, please specify if you would like this information shared with your child’s instructors. 

Please note that CCA staff cannot administer medications.

ELECTRONIC DEVICES

During class time, students are not allowed to use portable music players, personal laptops, tablets, or other electronic devices of any kind. We request that these items be left at home. If students have cell phones, they must be turned off while classes are in session.

REFUND POLICY

Withdrawal/refund requests must be made in writing and delivered either by email, postal mail or fax to the Office of Special Programs. The timestamp or postmark on the request will be honored as the withdrawal date.
