The state of education in the United States is progressing towards a fast-serve methodology.  Have you ever noticed that standardization can move creativity aside?  How many of us have desired a more personal one-on-one encounter with an instructor, only to get lost in a sea of large classes - where you, the student, are literally known as a number, rather than as a human being with a name!

For centuries, some students have found a better way:  Attend a research institute that will nurture your interests and provide a conducive atmosphere for learning.  The pedagogical traditions at the American Conservatory have, for over a century, stood the test of time.  ACM's Pulitzer Prize- winning Alumni are shining examples of the potential that is available in every person, given the opportunity to succeed.
