The active participation of the parents and family members of our students helps to ensure that CalArts remains vibrant and strong. Whether your student is just beginning their journey at the Institute, or graduated years ago, we’re happy to have you as part of our community of artists.

We’re here to help

As the family member of a student, the Office of Alumnx & Family Engagement is your conduit to CalArts. Our team is here to ensure that you have the information that you need to help your student succeed and to better understand how you can support their experience at the Institute.
