Ready to experience life as a college student at one of the oldest private, nonprofit art and design schools in America? CCAD’s College Preview program is the perfect opportunity to learn, create, and thrive on our beautiful campus located in downtown Columbus, Ohio. This program is for 10th-12th graders, rising 10th graders are welcome. Over the course of three weeks, emerging artists and designers will experience college-level instruction in their desired major in the morning, alongside closely mentored professional development, collaborative workshops, and electives taught by Columbus artists and CCAD faculty and staff in the afternoon. College Preview is perfect for creative thinkers who enjoy learning in a fast-paced environment and who embrace the challenge of learning new skills while making friends and earning college credit.
Students will have the opportunity to see firsthand why Columbus has become a thriving arts destination. Students will be living on-campus during their time at College Preview. Chaperoned trips to sites of interest such as the Scioto Mile, Otherworld, and the Short North Arts District will introduce students to central Ohio’s thriving arts community and guide them on their College Preview experience. Students will also have the opportunity to participate in a public-facing exhibition.
