Published June 19, 2013

"We have always been about serving our students", according to Studio Incamminati Executive Director Jay Pennie, "and accreditation lets students pursue educational loan and grant options and also streamlines the visa process for international students." Both are important, he said, as an increasing number of students have asked about student loans, just as inquiries from foreign students are on the rise.

The partnership with Philadelphia's Chestnut Hill College, highly regarded for its holistic approach to education, is the impetus for the college reinstating its Art Studio major. The joint Art Studio program offers students of both institutions the opportunity to combine a comprehensive liberal arts education with skills-based representational art training in order to develop rewarding careers - and lives - in the arts.
