    Parsons Academy offers a variety of art and design courses for students in grades 6 through 12 in subjects ranging from fine arts to design disciplines such as fashion, graphic design, interior design, photography, and more.

    In spring 2022, Parsons Academy will be held in an online synchronous format for students grades 6 through 8. High school students in grades 9 through 12 will have a choice between on-campus and online synchronous courses. 

    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.

    We will provide more COVID-related guidance for on-campus students upon enrollment.
