Colleges Give Perpich Students Rave Reviews

During Portfolio Day 2018, participating colleges gave Perpich students high praise.

The entire student body participated in college information sessions in the morning. In the afternoon, Studio Arts students met with individual college representatives from some of the most selective art schools in the country to review their portfolios. Perpich has been hosting Portfolio Day for over 20 years. It is an amazing event and the feedback we receive from colleges is always positive. Colleges continue to come for our students and speak highly of their skill and the opportunities students receive here.
"Perpich students are talented and knowledgeable about their college options. The Perpich Portfolio Day allows them to learn more about the specific requirements for each college and how they differ. It's also a great way to have in depth conversations and learn more about future applicants. This is truly one of my favorite work days of the year." Columbia College Chicago
"There are few schools - certainly not public ones - that provide students with a creative education as robust as Perpich. I wish I'd had the same opportunity when I went to high school!" California College of the Arts
"I was excited to make my first recruitment trip to Minneapolis, and Perpich is a real treasure of a school. The students are serious, engaged, and talented. I really enjoyed meeting such a wonderful group of young creative people." Otis College of Art and Design
"Perpich is a wonderful school with some top notch students - the breadth of work they produce is really impressive for their age!" Moore College of Art & Design
"For me, meeting Perpich students exemplifies what is possible when art is made a priority in young peoples' education. It not only improves their visual art skills, it fosters articulate, thoughtful, expressive young adults." NSCAD University - Nova Scotia College of Art and Design
"PNCA has been forging a relationship with Perpich students and staff for a few years. The Perpich students are passionate, technically strong young artists. Their individual styles shine through each and every portfolio we get to review which aligns with the principles of PNCA. PNCA is delighted to bring information about our ten BFA degree programs, about various creative-sector careers, and to personally meet students at the annual Portfolio Day." Pacific Northwest College of Art
"As the College of Architecture, Design, and the Arts at the University of Illinois at Chicago educates and mentors the next generation of visual and performing artists, designers, architects, art educators, art historians and museum professionals, we are excited to connect with the students at the Perpich Center for Arts Education. These students are creatives, thinkers, problem solvers, and decision-makers, which directly aligns with the type of student that thrives in our college." University of Illinois at Chicago - College of Architecture, Design, and the Arts
"The immersive experience at Perpich really prepares students for the demand of art school, making them more successful in the long run. The maturity of the students and their work is critically, conceptually, and technically developed." School of the Art Institute of Chicago
"Perpich students are approaching not only their creative process, but academic and critical process, with a keen eye for detail, innovation, and transformation. We love working with Perpich students! " MICA Maryland Institute College of Art
