Academics

  • Each academic day (M-F) starts with a daily meeting that includes breakfast – a chance for our students and team to check in and reflect on their learnings to prepare for the day ahead. Academic programming will generally occur from 9am-3pm on those days but will vary a bit in nature depending on the topic at hand. Site visits and field trips will round out the experience and will take students all over New York to complement their module topics.

    2020欧洲杯客户端下载The student life program will include exciting and engaging activities in and around the city – each tailored to help students develop skills and feel like real New Yorkers. Activities will take place Tuesday through Thursday evenings and Saturdays during the day. Outside of these activities, students will be able to use their time in the city however they’d like – and can even suggest activities for the larger cohort throughout the semester.

  • Students will need a laptop to participate in the program.

  • Yes, The School will provide various resources and opportunities for students to learn more about college readiness, however we do not offer one-on-one college counseling or admissions preparation.

Modules can last anywhere from 3 days to 2 weeks and academic programming will take place between 9am-3pm Monday through Friday, beginning with a daily breakfast meeting. The Student Life elements of the program will provide scheduled activities, some optional, that will encourage students to learn about living in New York with a different perspective.

  • New York City is one of the safest big cities in the United States. Program activities will mostly take place at our campus in Midtown Manhattan. While the academic building is a secured space, students should note that our campus is not separated from the city. As always, students should stay alert and travel with caution when leaving campus and understand that their distance from campus limits the ability of our student life staff to provide support. We encourage students and parents/guardians to discuss safety and guidelines prior to their arrival. Parents should feel comfortable allowing their students to move unsupervised throughout New York City during their free time.

    The School’s student life team provides additional levels of support including a “Safety in the City” presentation during orientation, tips on navigating public transit, as well as being available for student questions.
