It really depends on the school, most art colleges will detail their
requirements in the catalogue or application form... It's safe to say that
observed drawings from life, not photos, are looked for... but really,
it's about what the focus of that young artist has been and where they want
to go to continue their investigations... photography? computer art?
sculpture? jewelry? etc...
The Art Students League looks for a very different kind of work that, say,
the Institute of Chicago.

If there is a Portfolio Day anywhere near your area, you should definitely
go...with or without some of your students, to see for yourself what these
schools are looking for. It's fun, crowded, and you can pick up catalogues
and get on mailing lists. Some schools will send a rep. out to speak to
prospective students, so you might find that out as well.
