A Thriving Partnership

At CCA we consider the relationship we have with our students' parents and families as a partnership designed to help our students thrive and attain success.

Please see our Parents page that is geared toward parents of a college-bound youth.

We encourage you to also contact the Student Affairs Office for all your questions or concerns.

Again, congratulations, and welcome to California College of the Arts. We look forward to meeting you.
