My Husband recently attended the Pennsylvania Recording Arts & Sciences in Gettysburg also known as www.theaudioschool.com and PARAS, thinking he would be getting a high paying job in the music industry. Instead he is working in the local movie theater paying $7. an hour not exactly what we had in mine when we shelled out over $12,000 to take classe with Paul Chiacchierini who is a liar they dont even have any type of employment placement service after graduation even though he promised my husband he would help him get a job. Now we cant afford to pay the rent because my husbands pay working at the movie theater just doesnt cut it, so if you dont want to end up being homeless I would suggest NOT taking classes there.

Please contact me so we can help you take the last course over again.  If you truly are a graduate of the Academy then I would remind you of the information imparted to you in the Business Communications course.  I would be happy to meet with you again to give you a fresh perspective on how to gain employment.  I have been at the Academy for several months and more than likely never met with you.  I am sincere in my invitation and look forward to hearing from you.  I challenge you to take me up on my offer and would like to see you employed as well.  Call me at 717-334-4487.  Sincerely, Bill Chenaille

THIS REPORT IS FALSE!!

AUTHOR: Paul Chiacchierini - (U.S.A.)

My name is Paul Chiacchierini. I am a Vice President of the parent company that owns the Pennsylvania Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (not the school Director). I do not give entrance interviews as was stated in the complaint. I invite anyone to investigate our company with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. We are a company in good standing with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, a member of the Gettysburg Adams Chamber of Commerce, and the only Private Licensed School for recording & audio technology in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The provisions set by our licensure with Pennsylvania prohibit us from "Ripping anybody off" by a series of painstaking reports that have to be filed each physical quarter. Our school must maintain a 65% placement rate for graduates and we currently hold an 80% job placement. In addition, we carry a 97% graduation rate. Pennsylvania has the toughest regulations for licensed trade schools out of any state of the 50, and we have maintained a spotless record for our first 2 years of operation. No person that attended our school could have written this letter; since we require a 12th grade reading level by giving a Wonderlic Basic Skills exam (required by the Commonwealth) before the student is admitted. The author of this complaint did not care enough about it to check their facts nor their spelling. Please do more than just consult this website before considering a school of any kind for your education.
