Seattle Central Creative Academy

SCCA, located on the fifth floor at Seattle Central Community College, is home to the college’s Photography and Graphic Design programs.

Students enjoy an $8 million dollar facility that features integrated classes and shared resources, plus studios and labs that simulate real-world, professional environments. What’s more, the facility incorporates the equipment and workflow of professional design studios into the curriculum.
With 38,000 square feet of space, the Academy features natural lighting throughout with sweeping views of Downtown Seattle and Puget Sound from expansive west-facing windows and a spectacular view of Mt. Rainier to the southeast. Cal Anderson Park to the east possesses a quiet charm with the water sculpture, park benches and tree-lined greenery.

Graphic Design
Graduates of the Graphic Design Program get to work when they leave us. Our curriculum is strong on graphic design fundamentals, yet explores and adapts to emerging communication technologies. We pride ourselves in keeping our curriculum current with changes and developments on an annual basis. Conceptual design and technical skill are combined to produce a competitive portfolio. Problem solving, strategy development, and powerful use of typography and visuals achieve our communication solutions.
