    Summer Academy NY & DC gives intellectually curious high school students the opportunity to pursue their passions and study with experts in the fields of journalism, media, politics, technology, arts, culture, sports, business, fashion and more. 

    Our program brings this unique academic experience directly to you, wherever you are in the world. Each two-week course draws on the expertise and unrivaled access of The New York Times and encourages students to think critically and creatively while exploring their passions and building skills for life. Highlights will include live video instruction from world-class faculty, a line-up of exciting guest speakers and site visits.

    All courses are led by School of The New York Times faculty in an interactive learning environment. The courses are designed to enhance our students’ writing, critical thinking, visual storytelling and persuasive communication skills to help guide their academic and professional paths.

    Two-week courses in NY & DC are offered in four separate terms spanning from June to July. Students may enroll in more than one term for a 10% tuition discount.

    Classes take place in Canvas, a best-in-class learning management system used by top education institutions around the world.Live video instruction and guided group activities are led by faculty and guest experts every weekday. We keep our class sizes intentionally small so that students receive individual feedback on their assignments and final projects.

    Daily self-paced projects, readings and independent explorations are assigned to enhance each student's understanding of the course content. Each course also includes a final project that is presented at the end of the term.
