Welcome, #mooreacceptedstudent! As a future member of the Moore Class of 2024, you are now part of an elite group of women who have joined us here in Philadelphia to take ownership of their lives, their art and their careers. As a Moore student, you will be part of a community that is proud of its 172-year legacy of educating women for careers in the visual arts. 

Our one-of-a-kind learning environment will challenge you both artistically and academically, encourage you to broaden your creative vision, help you build connections to trailblazers and peers doing amazing work in art and design, and fully prepare you for a rewarding career as an artist, designer or arts educator. Get ready for the experience of a lifetime!

Scroll down to watch several welcome videos from our students, faculty and staff—with many more to come!—and find out why we are so excited about Moore, and so excited to welcome you here in the fall. 

Moore has awarded Visionary Woman Scholarships with the goal of increasing opportunity and access to high-quality visual arts education to a broad and diverse array of talented women, many of whom may not have otherwise had the ability to pursue careers in art and design. 

Moore developed the Visionary Woman Honors Program in 2014, which includes a $22,000 annual scholarship ($19,000 annually for transfer students), along with four years of comprehensive training. A Visionary Woman Honors Scholarship is our most competitive scholarship and supplants all other Moore merit scholarships. The program provides two goal-oriented options for student learning—Leadership Path or Academic Path—and is designed to support students in achieving their career goals, developing as leaders and gifted academics, and pursuing their professional dreams.
