Applications for the California State Summer School for Arts offers a four-week summer arts program are due by Feb. 28.

CSSSA is a rigorous pre-professional training program in the visual and performing arts, creative writing, animation, and film for talented artists of high school age.

The School was created by the California Legislature, held its first session in 1987 and will conduct its 25th session in 2011.

Its purpose is to provide a training ground for future artists who wish to pursue careers in the arts and entertainment industries in California.

The California State Summer School for the Arts is a state agency funded through a unique public-private partnership.

CSSSA is held at the California Institute of the Arts, a fully accredited degree-granting institution of higher learning for students of the visual, cinematic, and performing arts.

The comprehensive fee covering room, board and tuition for California State residents for four weeks is $1,550. For non-California residents, the fee is $5,000. About 40 percent of participants receive financial aid.
