Request Information Apply

Oxbow welcomes applicants from a wide range of backgrounds. Previous art and studio experience is helpful but not required, as instruction at Oxbow supports emerging talents in a nurturing but rigorous environment. We seek a diverse group of mature, academically sound, naturally curious students who are healthy risk-takers with a lively interest in the visual arts. All students are required to live on campus and adhere to the Oxbow community standards and, by choosing to attend Oxbow, they commit to fully engaging in the challenge of forging mature relationships with peers and faculty. Oxbow accepts applications for either the Fall or Spring semester of the junior or senior year in high school, or for one semester of a Gap Year. Oxbow has rolling admissions and accepts applications all year long. We have an early decision/priority application date of February 15th. Please contact the Admissions Office for more information.
