The following features some of the highlights of Full Sail s history as well as that of our graduates. In 1980, Full Sail moved from its original home in Dayton, Ohio to Orlando, Florida. During the six years that followed, new audio courses were added to the original recording arts offering until, in 1986, the Recording Arts Comprehensive Program was introduced. In 1988, a new curriculum with a focus on the visual arts was born the Video and Film Production Comprehensive Program. In July 1989, Full Sail moved into its current home in Winter Park, Florida (a suburb of Orlando) which has since expanded into a 110+ studio multimedia campus Founded in Dayton, Ohio 1980 Moved to Orlando, Florida 1989 Full Sail moves into its current home in Winter Park, Florida For three years in succession, Full Sail wins the prestigious TEC Award (Technical Excellence and Creativity) 1987 for Best Recording School/Program, presented annually by Mix Magazine 1990 Graduate credit on Graduate credit on Michael Jackson s Bad 8 million copies sold August 1990 marked a milestone in history when Full Sail received accreditation allowing students to earn Specialized Associate Degrees upon successful completion of the curricula in the Recording Arts and/or Film and Video Production Programs.
