SACI Studio Art Centers International, Florence, Italy, was founded in Tuscany in 1975 and incorporated in 1976 as a U.S. non-profit 501 c (3) educational institution for undergraduate and graduate university-level students seeking fully accredited studio art, design, and liberal arts instruction. SACI offers five different programs of study to meet the diverse needs of students: Academic Year Abroad, Academic Semester Abroad, Post-Baccalaureate Program, MFA Program, and Summer Studies (including summer term non-credit study programs).
The mission of Studio Art Centers International is to provide excellent studio and academic classes at undergraduate and graduate university level in overseas study. SACI also aims, by focusing on integrating students into Italian society and opening up Italian skills and resources to them, to help creative persons maximize their foreign study experience.

In order to fulfill this goal, SACI provides the best possible faculty, administration staff, facilities, and curriculum, to enable students to realize their full potential during study abroad, which can be a catalyst and inspiration of key importance for an artist or a scholar.
