The school was founded in 1869 as the McMicken School of Design. It became the Art Academy of Cincinnati in 1887 as the museum school of the Cincinnati Art Museum. The academy has been an independent college since 1998. It is currently accredited and is a charter member of the National Association of Schools of Art and Design and the Commission on Institutions of Higher Education of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.

AAC currently grants a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, a Master of Arts Degree in Art Education, and an Associate of Science Degree in Graphic Design. Undergraduate students can major in a variety of subjects including Art History, Drawing, Illustration, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture, and Visual Communication Design. To be considered for admission, a prospective student must, among other requirements, submit a portfolio of work demonstrating their “potential to succeed as an artist in our program.”

All first-year out-of-town students are required to reside in the academy’s residential hall. Located in a renovated building a block from the school, the hall provides loft-style living with full kitchens, bathrooms and laundry facilities. AAC offers its students numerous opportunities to participate in extracurricular activities such as a lunch-hour lecture series featuring professionals from Cincinnati’s art community, a twice-semester open mic night where students can show off their musical, lyrical and poetic talents, and the Stinks, AAC’s co-ed indoor soccer team.

AAC maintains three art galleries with changing exhibitions that feature works by students, faculty, alumni, and other emerging and professional artists. All galleries are open to the public.
