The American Academy of Art was founded in 1923 by Frank Young and Harry L. Timmins to train students for careers in commercial and fine art.
Enrollment is typically between 400 and 500 students. Eight areas of study are offered for a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, all of which require 126 credit hours to graduate. The academy is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges of Technology.
