Ming Creative Art Academy is, and always will be, committed to helping our students find the right postsecondary fit. Although we are unable to host an in-person event this year, we are proud to reinforce our commitment to supporting MCAA students with the announcement of our first-ever Virtual Art College Fair on Saturday, August 7th!
At this virtual event, you will experience:
A collaboration between industry professionals, colleges, and MCAA alumni to provide virtual presentations about post-secondary arts and academic opportunities, as well as sessions from our counselors on how to navigate application deadlines, financial aid, and more during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond.
A virtual, fully interactive college fair platform where colleges can showcase their unique attributes to students and parents. Top Art Colleges will have representatives giving a live presentation following a Q&A with students.
Each college will have a scheduled 45-minute time frame to present. Students may choose to participate in all of the presentations or only the colleges they are interested in. If you are unsure, we highly encourage participation in all presentations.
An opportunity to have a pre-scheduled private 1-on-1 portfolio review with a MCAA Counselor.
