API Mission: (Narrative)

Alpha Pacific Institute was created in order to provide a creative learning environment designed to bring out and develop the unique talents of our students. Discovering and developing talent is the goal of API. And we're located in beautiful Phoenix, Arizona.

Alpha Pacific Institute is the truly independent name in broadcasting schools, television production schools, news reporting schools, photography workshops, radio broadcasting schools, film schools, photography schools and academy .

Alpha Pacific realizes there are many great broadcasting schools, film schools, television production schools, radio broadcasting schools, photography workshops and academy schools in the west. We urge all applicants to compare other schools with Alpha Pacific. Are there other photography workshops and graphic arts schools, tv production schools or even a news reporting school that allow you to return after you graduate to work on your skills? Do other radio broadcasting schools allow you to do true "talk show" format with incoming phone lines? What other news reporting school has you producing real stories in the field? Or interviewing real celebrities? News reporting school was never like this! Do other tv production schools offer lifetime placement assistance? And, what tv production schools are located in an actual production facility that is used for real broadcast tv production?

You'll soon discover the difference in attending a truly specialized institute such as Alpha Pacific.. There is a difference.

The staff at Alpha Pacific Institute has over 20 years experience training individuals for careers in the entertainment industry. Many individuals we've taught can be found working in markets around the world including Los Angeles, Phoenix, New York, Chicago, London, Sidney, Montreal and more. API is not your average academy, television production school, news reporting school, radio broadcasting school, broadcasting school or graphic arts school.
