Why Choose AAMI?
On behalf of the faculty and staff of American Academy McAllister Institute (AAMI), I would like to welcome you to our school.
AAMI has a long history both as a pioneer and a leader in funeral service education. Our greatest strengths have been in preparing students for success in their courses and other requirements leading to licensure and preparing them for successful careers in funeral service.
AAMI offers its funeral service associate degree both on-campus and online and students may attend either full-time or part-time. The campus and online options are identical in the courses offered with both requiring 69 credits of prescribed courses. The campus and online courses are taught by the same faculty. To complete the clinical embalming and restorative art lab all students are required to spend several days at the campus in New York City to complete their final credits for graduation.
Campus classes are located in the heart of New York City. In addition to classrooms and offices, the campus has an extensive funeral service library, a demonstration embalming lab and a computer resource lab.
The faculty of AAMI are mostly comprised of licensed funeral directors who have achieved additional expertise in the field of education. This combination of the theoretical and real-world situations provides a rich educational experience.
If our website does not answer all of your questions about AAMI, please call our admissions office and one of our admissions advisors will be available to answer any of your questions. We are ready to help you to achieve your professional goals in funeral service.
— GEORGE P. CONNICK, PRESIDENT
