What Students Are Saying

3.98 Average Rating
MICA is a great school that encourages every student to reach their full potential, while still staying true to who they really are. The entire faculty and staff are very encouraging and also help every single student grow as each year passes. Everyone in the MICA community is full of so much love and generosity, including the teachers who provide amazing opportunities for the students, which helps us after we graduate. .

mica has a very engaging and accepting environment for students. they seem more generous with scholarships for incoming students than other schools of their caliber. the classes offered are excellent and you will be worked very hard and rewarded for your honest effort.
