We are excited that you chose to attend California School of the Arts! Our school offers a world-class academic and arts education, yet that is not what will make CSArts a special place. That responsibility is ours. We are tasked, together, with creating a culture of respect, acceptance, creativity, and achievement. We want CSArts to be a model for inclusion and collaboration - a place where it’s safe to share your ideas, ask questions, take academic and artistic risks, and feel welcomed every single day.
The Student Handbook is a guide of our daily expectations and practices. It is a description of how we will function as a family. It is based on a simple concept:
- Respect yourself
- Respect others
- Respect this place
CSArts is an experience that is going to grow better and more dynamic with each passing Season, and we are excited that you’ve chosen to join us on this journey. Our strength and success depends on the involvement and commitment of our entire CSArts family - that includes you!
We are confident that our second season will be a powerful and life-changing one. Let’s make CSArts a special place.
