Parsons Pre-College Academy Program

Parsons holds the Pre-College Academy program on Saturdays for students in grades 3 through 12. Students can choose from a variety of art and design disciplines grouped by elementary, middle and high school grade levels. Students do not need art or design experience to participate, although more experienced students may choose to enroll in a portfolio development class to further their art and design studies. Registration is currently open and classes begin on Saturday, September 27.

We are holding an information session on Saturday, September 13th at 11:00 a.m. in Kellen Auditorium, located at 66 5th Avenue between 11th and 12th Streets. Representatives will discuss the different classes on offer this semester and details about our pre-college certificate program. Attendees will have an opportunity to see examples of student work and ask questions from Parsons representatives. Everyone is welcome to attend. Please RSVP here: www.newschool.edu/p/rsvp/

Throughout the year, Parsons hosts a variety of free art and design related events and workshops for youth. Many of our events like Portfolio Redefined are focused on portfolio preparation and college readiness. Other events like PlayTech are opportunities for students to learn about industry careers like Game Design and interact with peers from across the tri-state area.
