When Ron Seichrist opened Portfolio Center in 1978, he created the first "portfolio school" in the world. In 1993, he and his wife Pippa founded Miami Ad School, building upon the original concept with a multinational—and multicultural—twist. In the fall of 2015, both of Ron's brainchildren came together when Portfolio Center became part of Miami Ad School, now numbering 15 locations worldwide. Truly, the sun never sets on the Miami Ad School family.
Atlanta has always been part of Portfolio Center's appeal. Home to a thriving art scene and a growing film industry, the city has one of the highest concentrations of Fortune 500 companies in the United States and abounds with career opportunities.
Atlanta has an extremely diverse urban environment—art museums, historic sites, theme parks, shops, a full complement of professional sports teams and as varied a music scene as can be found anywhere. It's an ideal place to spend time in as you prepare for your creative career.
Portfolio Center's longstanding reputation for excellence continues, with nearly 70 awards for student work so far in 2016. We look forward to more great work in the months and years to come.
