Challenge yourself to unleash your true artistic potential.

Tisch programs for high school students are a way for you to develop your talents and explore the possibilities of a career in the arts. The rigorous, professional training you receive in New York City is an outgrowth of the undergraduate programs, offering you an immersive experience in emerging media and the performing and cinematic arts.

We encourage creativity and self-expression while providing you with a foundation for collaboration. The high school programs taught by our full-time faculty are intense, engaging and structured; created to give you an enriching college experience.


The Tisch Summer High School Program is tuition-based and culminates in six college credits. This program is a commitment of four weeks on campus that encompasses a highly structured class schedule. You will live in an NYU residence hall for the duration of the program. The summer program is open to high school sophomores and juniors from around the world.

The Spring Future Artists Programs are free of charge and for groups traditionally underrepresented in the media industry. These programs require a 12-week committment on Saturdays from early-February through mid-May and are taught by faculty from the undergraduate departments. This is a commuter program, not a residency program. To be eligible for this program, you must be a junior in high school or younger and attend a high school in one of the five boroughs of New York City, or (but not limited to) Westchester County, Long Island, New Jersey, parts of Philadelphia and Connecticut.
