President Stephens Kicks Off Spring 2005 Semester
Dear Friend of the Academy,
I am pleased to announce that our 2005 Spring Semester has begun with more classes offered, more
student facilities in use, and more professional faculty teaching than ever before in our history.
And our online curriculum and degree programs have greatly expanded as well. As the interest and
demand from our student population continues to grow, we are successfully meeting our students
needs and expectations.
Since our founding in 1929, our mission is to provide aspiring artists and designers with the
skills necessary for successful careers in art and design. Over 80% of our graduates have found
creative careers in art and design, and we are proud of every one of them.
Whether its Pixar or Lucas Film or Apple Computer, we connect our students to leading
industries and companies. Academy students are successfully working in virtually all fields of art
and design, and their impact on our world will be felt for years to come.
There is a wealth of opportunity waiting for you to learn how you too can follow this dream. I
encourage you to visit our website, tour our campus (both in San Francisco and online), and join
I look forward to seeing you on campus or online!
