What’s going to happen to the Oakland campus? Are you closing/selling it?
The future of our Oakland campus is a top priority, and we are exploring a range of options for how we can best use this important part of our legacy for the benefit of CCA and the greater community. Options include alternative uses and partnerships with other mission-aligned organizations.

facilities for making of all kinds, including fine arts and crafts
Our goal in our planning is not to reshape CCA's core mission and educational ideology. Rather, we strive to reaffirm our powerful founding legacy in the Arts and Crafts movement, to amplify the college's reputation for diverse practice, and to promote the distinctive educational model that has defined a CCA education for over a century.
