Youth & Teen Summer Programs at The New School

The Parsons Pre-College Academy provides diverse classes and certificate options for students in grades 3 through 12. High school juniors, seniors, and recent graduates can work directly with leading faculty and develop their skills and portfolio. A wide selection of courses is offered on subjects including animation, fashion, graphic design, interior design, drawing, painting, cartooning, photography, and portfolio development. 

The Mannes Prep Summer Chamber Intensive is perfect for young musicians searching for a uniquely personalized musical experience within a nurturing community. Students are grouped into chamber ensembles for the week and participate in daily chamber coachings, sight-reading classes, master classes and workshops, and jam sessions with members of Mannes Prep’s outstanding and inspiring faculty. The week culminates in a student performance open to family, friends, and the public.
