The OSA community consists of far more than the student and faculty populations, and we value our place in the uptown Oakland arts scene. Students' families are a vital part of our extended family, as are arts organizations, local businesses and the City of Oakland, which has contributed to the school in so many ways -- most notably in allowing us to occupy the historic Fox Theater.

We continue to reach out to ensure our students have the full experience of being in one of the most diverse and dynamic environments in the world. View our partners below to get an idea of the breadth of our involvement with the exciting organizations that make Oakland such a special place to attend school and work as a young artist.
