Design your future…

Welcome to the American Institute of Interior Design, a boutique Interior Design school located in Fountain Hills, Arizona, a picturesque suburb of Phoenix. We are a private post-secondary institution specializing in the practical education of Interior Designers. The American Institute of Interior Design (AIID) offers an accelerated 6-month training program leading to a Certificate in Interior Design, and is institutionally accredited by the Accrediting Commission of Career Schools and Colleges (ACCSC).

Students learn a balance of residential as well as commercial design topics in a high energy and fun academic setting. Our instructors are practicing Interior Designers themselves, so rest assured you are getting the most up to date and practical education possible. You don’t even need to wait for traditional semesters to begin your program…just jump right in at the beginning of the next course. A school that operates on your schedule? Refreshing.

We're passionate about educating Interior Designers, and we have a 30 year history of success in the Phoenix and Scottsdale area. Contact us to see how we can help with your new career in design.
