Moore College of Art & Design’s co-ed Adult Continuing Education (ACE) programs are a magnet for career changers and creative professionals who seek new skills and enhanced credentials. Celebrating and nurturing individuality, we make space and open opportunity for the kind of inclusive talent and new vision employers want and successful creative entrepreneurs need. 

"This is my first time returning to school in a long time. [My instructor] encouraged me when I felt like I was too old for the class and not knowledgeable enough to pursue my dream. He made me feel like I could do anything."

"I feel very comfortable using the programs we learned. I especially appreciated the way assignments built on themselves, so that we revisited skills learned in previous classes. I feel confident that I will retain everything because of that."
