The AAP study centers in the US are set up by China Education Association for International Exchange, which include the San Francisco study center and New York study center. The two study centers provide Chinese students a chance to access world class universities in the US.  

AAP has two partner schools in the San Francisco study center: San Francisco Art Institute and San Francisco State University, which are both leaders of modern art education on the west coast of United States, and provide not only a variety of well organized courses but also state-of-the-art learning facilities.
