    Parsons Academy offers online courses in a variety of art and design disciplines for students in grades 3 through 12 and a certificate program for students in grades 9 through 12. Courses are taught by industry professionals and range in subject from fine arts to design disciplines such as fashion, graphic design, interior design, and illustration. Classes meet on Saturday mornings during the school year.

    There are two special programs within Parsons Academy:

    The non-credit Parsons Academy Certificate Program supports students in grades 9 through 12 as they create a college admissions portfolio. Our world-class faculty help students employ basic skills and original thinking in a collaborative environment.

    Parsons Scholars is a college preparatory program that makes Parsons available to talented students who might not otherwise have such an opportunity. The program offers multi-year scholarships to students attending New York City public high schools.
