About Portfolio School

The Creative Circus mission is to graduate the best-prepared, most avidly sought-after creatives in the marketing communications industry. With all due respect to your Magna cum something status, the fact is, it won’t get you hired in the top creative departments. Portfolios do. Really good ones. Sure, there’s always an exception. That kid whose father knows someone. The talented freak of nature. But for everyone else, The Creative Circus is a great portfolio school to start and an even better place to finish. Because when you do, you’ll be well prepared to get hired at agencies, and more importantly excel there.



Conveniently located in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia our building is a colorful converted warehouse. Our four dedicated computer labs are equipped with over 60  27inch iMacs with i7 processors. Students have access to the latest versions of Adobe Creative Cloud in all of the labs. Each lab is also equipped with high definition projection systems for instructors. The entire campus is wireless for access by student laptops and mobile devices so you can concept & work anywhere your heart desires. We have two high-capacity laser printers and scanners (color and black/white). Our large theater features audio visual capability for the latest in multimedia presentations.

Our photography studios include a large daylight studio and a large dark studio with a cyclorama wall with green screen capability. We are a dog friendly environment. The school has an outdoor deck and picnic area. We have a small library well stocked with industry publications. In addition to the two gallery exhibit areas, most of the wall space in the school is used to showcase student work.




The Creative Circus is accredited by the Commission of the Council on Occupational Education (COE). COE is a national accrediting agency.
