Learn from New York City’s Best at Summer Academy

This past summer, students engaged with professors and one another virtually during our Online Summer Academy. Though we were not able to meet in-person in New York City, students still had an enriching experience during the program. One student wrote of her experience, “The experience was unforgettable and I am so glad that I got to be a part of it!”

We are looking forward to offering Summer Academy again during Summer 2021. Out of an abundance of caution, we are unable announce at this time if the program will be in-person or virtual, but check back soon for further updates.
