Non-degree academic opportunities

Throughout the year, we host on-campus adult and youth-based programs for the general public, including working professionals and practicing artists, as well as summer programs that allow high school students, and non-CCA college students to earn college credit.

We are pleased to be able to return to some in-person instruction in summer 2021 and are already making plans to welcome students on campus.

  • Continuing Studies: Check out our wide range of non-credit extension classes for professional, intellectual, and creative development.
  • Pre-College: This summer program is designed for high school students, who have just completed their sophomore, junior, or senior year, to experience CCA first-hand while earning transferable college credit. Housing is not available due to the COVID–19 pandemic.
  • Summer Atelier: Local high school students, who have just completed their freshman or sophomore year, can focus on a number of select disciplines in our non-credit Summer Atelier program.
  • Young Artist Studio Program (YASP): Our summer program for middle-school students, who have just completed sixth, seventh, or eighth grade, offers a wide-range of art classes.
  • Summer Study Abroad: CCA has an extraordinary reputation for unique study-abroad programs, designed and led by our faculty. Due to the COVID–19 pandemic, we’ve made the difficult decision to not schedule any summer study-abroad programs for summer 2021.
