About Us


Ashante Contemporary Jewelry &Digital School was founded in 1998 as an innovative avenue for creatives with an accreditation from the National Accreditation Board offering students a cutting-edge spin on a prestigious art education. Now operating as an independent institution, ACJDS provides one of the richest opportunities available in art and design education today.


 Our main building — which houses our classrooms, administrative offices, and several galleries — still boasts the original Art Deco detailing from its construction in year.
