Thank you for your interest in New Orleans Center for Creative Arts!

As Louisiana's arts conservatory for high school students, New Orleans Center for Creative Arts (NOCCA) provides professional arts training to talented Louisiana students in Classical Instrumental, Classical Vocal Music, Creative Writing, Culinary Arts, Dance, Drama, Jazz Instrumental, Media Arts, Musical Theatre, Theatre Design, Visual Arts, and Academics. Attendance options include full-day, half-day, after school, and summer. A successful NOCCA student is expected to maintain a professional level of commitment to training and progress. NOCCA's rules, procedures and grading system mirror those of the professional arts world, so that students receive rewards and setbacks at NOCCA based on the same criteria they would face in an arts career. NOCCA is tuition-free, but students are required to pay a Department Fee to cover supply costs. Assistance may be available to help pay for such fees, based on the student's needs.
