Overview

Baruch Leadership Academy is a dynamic and interactive summer program that brings talented students from around the world to study in the heart of NYC. The Academy offers six dynamic programs and SAT prep for motivated high school students interested in pursuing careers in medicine, business finance, and technology.

After careful consideration, Baruch College’s Office of Enrollment Management and Strategic Academic Initiatives has decided to suspend the summer 2021 cohort of the Baruch Leadership Academy. This decision is aligned with the efforts by the City University of New York and Baruch College to mitigate the potential effects of COVID-19 moving forward.

In affiliation with the decision of no longer moving forward with this year’s program, Baruch Leadership Academy will no longer be accepting or reviewing applications materials for summer 2021.  However, you may continue to review information about the program & distinct tracks and apply for the 2022 summer cohort.

The Baruch Leadership Academy strives to bring talented high school students from around the globe together in New York City for intellectually stimulating and culturally enriching academic exploration. Academy pre-professional programs allow students to explore new realms of academia, engross themselves in college planning and standardized test preparation, and better plan for success in their future endeavors. At the Baruch College campus, Academy students experience college life while they prepare to shine in the college admissions process, excel at the university level, and embark on successful, focused career paths.  The Academy offers five tracks of study for rising juniors and seniors: Pre-Med, Financial Engineering & Applied Mathematics, Global Finance & Economics, Leadership in Technology, and Entrepreneurship. Rising sophomores study a specialized Sophomore Enrichment track of study. All tracks at the Academy include focused learning in their concentrated field as well as SAT preparation.
