We are Colleagues

Our programs' integrity is measured by the standards we follow. Inspired by the requirements of NASAD and aligned with AICAD's enrollment standards, ArtOne’s goal is to consistently produce the best qualified applicants and robust evidence that we're meeting our goals.


We also realize that the relationships we have with AICAD-affiliated colleges are the most important single differentiator between ArtOne and other college-prep programs; it's why we seek the involvement of AICAD faculty and administrators to make our programs the best in the world.
