The Art Institute of Pittsburgh Shares 'College & Career Knowledge’ With High School Students

Recently, nearly 50 high school students and teachers got a crash course in “College & Career Knowledge,” through an event hosted by The Art Institute of Pittsburgh.

The half-day campus experience was organized in collaboration with The Consortium for Public Education, a nonprofit organization working with school districts across western Pennsylvania. The goal was to get young people, who might have reservations about college, excited about continuing their education beyond high school.

Students from three Pittsburgh-area schools: McKeesport Area High School, Mt. Pleasant Area Junior/Senior High School, and Southmoreland Senior High School went on tours of The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, participated in breakout sessions, and enjoyed a catered lunch.

During the roundtable discussions, faculty, staff, and students answered questions about the college experience. Anderson English, department chair of Photography/Digital Filmmaking & Video Production and Visual Effects & Motion Graphics at The Art Institute of Pittsburgh, led a session with high school teachers about faculty expectations for students, the difference between high school and college classes, and other topics.

Employees from admissions, campus relations, career services, culinary, GETCreative, and media arts departments, along with students studying culinary and graphic design, participated in the “College & Career Knowledge” program.
