California College of the Arts
California College of the Arts was established in 1907 by Frederick Meyer, who was involved in the Arts and Crafts movement that originated in Europe. After leaving his home in Germany, and moving to the Bay Area in 1902, he aimed to provide an education for artists and designers. In 1907, he founded the School of the California Guild of Arts and Crafts. The school changed its name to the California College of Arts and Crafts in 1936. After continued growth over the years, the institution changed its name to what it is today in 2003.
California College of the Arts has almost 2000 students, with 31% coming from over 50 different countries. CCA consists of two campuses, one in Oakland, and the other in San Francisco. CCA hosts many innovative events, exhibitions, and lectures for its students. The International Student Affairs and Programs (ISAP) provides assistance to international students, as well as assisting with exchange programs for CCA students.
