Request Information Apply

Oxbow welcomes applicants from a wide range of backgrounds. Previous art and studio experience are 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 with a lively interest in the visual arts. All students are required to live on campus and adhere to the Oxbow community standards. By choosing to attend Oxbow, our students commit to 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. Please contact the Admissions Office for more information @
