CHAVÓN opens a new cycle in its institutional history by offering the careers of Fine Arts and Cinema in Santo Domingo under the same philosophy based on artistic creativity, learning, professional activity, and cultural expression.

Affiliated to Parsons School of Design since its inception in 1983, CHAVÓN joins the movement of urban energy and innovation. The Rector, Stephen Kaplan, states, “Today more than ever, we maintain the commitment to give continuity to what we have built; as well as the desire to continue training our students under our customary academic quality standards. This move allows us to continue building a new era together. ”

With the excellence that characterizes this pioneering institution in its area, this evolution will allow it to connect its programs with the artistic community, linking academic activity to the local and international creative industry. Likewise, CHAVÓN will continue collaborating with its educational mission in Altos de Chavón through special programs, workshops, and cultural activities on the La Romana campus.


Founded in 1983, The Altos de Chavón School of Design offers careers in applied arts in the areas of Fine Arts, Visual Communication and Fashion. This type of intensive two-year program provides the graduates with an associate degree at a technical level, which provides them with a solid education that enables participants to compete as professionals in the field of design and arts both locally and internationally.

Graduates of the School of Design are eligible to transfer directly to Parsons School of Design in New York. More than 2,000 Dominicans and students from around the world have graduated from the School of Design, demonstrating that a solid background in design, parallel to an emphasis on the development of the industry is the best formula for a successful career.

The highly practical and market-oriented curriculum, provides students with a unique set of skills that allows them to be easily inserted into the work environment.
