• Are curious and self-directed. 
  • Love to dig into complex questions. 
  • Connect best with dynamic teachers who challenge you to think in new ways. 
  • Are looking for a school that’s also a community. 
  • Care not only about what you learn, but how you learn it. 
  • Have multiple areas of interest that you would like to study. 
  • See things in the world you’d like to change, and believe that change is possible. 

Visiting our campus might be the best way to answer that question. Take a tour, interview with one of our admission counselors, sit in on a class, and eat in our dining hall. Get a feel for our community to see if it’s right. 

Can’t make it for a visit? You can schedule an online interview with an admission counselor to learn more about COA.
