The Colburn Music Academy is focused on expanding students’ musical knowledge and performance abilities in preparation for post-secondary study and careers as professional musicians. The Music Academy does not grant high school diplomas. The intensive components of Music Academy instruction and associated activities take place at various times during the week, and students must complete their state-mandated academic education requirements through an external accredited K-12 school. Colburn has relationships with high school programs, and you can find more information about these schools below.
The Colburn School prides itself on creating a tailored learning environment for each of our students so that they can reach their fullest potential as artists and human beings.
Since the fall of 2018, the Colburn School has partnered with Oak Crest Academy (OCA), an accredited independent academic school for gifted and talented students, to provide a curated high-school
program for Music Academy, Dance Academy and Community School of Performing Arts students at Colburn. OCA offers academic instructors and individualized learning programs on Colburn’s campus for a select number of students grades five through high school. OCA currently serves K-12 students on 6 campuses; Oak Park, Tarzana, Pomona, Harvard, Pasadena, and in Los Angeles at the Colburn School.
The Oak Crest program allows efficiency and flexibility for students seeking more time to pursue their music studies while offering a rigorous academic education, and includes:
Tuition for each student enrolled in the OCA program is set at approximately $9,735.00 per year (final tuition amount will be finalized by April 2023). Tuition may be paid in full or in installments. There is a $165 application fee and a $2.75% tuition insurance fee. Tuition is inclusive of all curriculum, either online or textbook, and use of the learning center.

Colburn Music Academy students may be eligible for a 10% tuition discount to Laurel Springs School. The online K-12 school provides students scheduling flexibility to fit in both academic classwork as well as music studies and performance commitments.
Additional high school options may be available, by approval from the Provost with Laurel Springs School.
