Ready to Jump Start Your Career.

Lakewood, OH. March 29, 2024

Dear North Coast College Community,

It is with a heavy heart and a deep sense of gratitude that we announce the closure of The North Coast College, effective August 30th, 2024. After 58 years of dedicated service in higher education, it is a moment of reflection on the rich history, achievements, and countless memories we have shared as a community.

Founded in 1966, The North Coast College, formerly known as Virginia Marti College of Art and Design, has been fostering creativity, innovation, and personal growth for generations of students. The decision to close the college comes after careful consideration of various factors, including shifts in educational landscapes and evolving community needs.

To our esteemed faculty, whose passion for teaching has inspired countless minds, and to our dedicated staff, who have tirelessly supported the day-to-day operations, I extend our heartfelt appreciation. Your commitment to nurturing a vibrant learning environment has been the cornerstone of our institution.

To our students and alumni, we thank you for choosing The North Coast College as your academic home. Your contributions, achievements, and diverse perspectives have enriched our campus and community. We are immensely proud of the successes you have achieved during your time with us.

As we close this chapter, we express our deepest gratitude to the parents, guardians, and families who entrusted us with the education of their loved ones. Your support has been invaluable, and we are grateful for the trust you placed in our institution.

We extend our best wishes to each member of our North Coast College family as you embark on new educational journeys and professional endeavors. Thank you for being an integral part of The North Coast College's story.

It has been an honor to serve as your president.

With heartfelt gratitude,

Dr. Milan Milasinovic
