Mission

We are dedicated to fostering research, presenting history and art exhibitions, and public programs that reveal the dynamism of history and its influence on the world of today

Activities

The New-York Historical Society offers Gilder Lehrman Saturday Academy, a free, six-week program for students in grades 8–12 that offers courses in American Studies and SAT prep*. With no homework or tests, these courses offer fun and interesting information on the bits of history that don’t always find their way into the classroom.

Students meet for six Saturdays each session and may take one class or two. All classes are offered twice, at 10-11:30 am, then again at 11:40 am-1 pm.

*Please note: The SAT Prep classes are open only to students currently enrolled in 10th, 11th or 12th grade. Students who register for SAT Prep must also enroll in a history-based Saturday Academy course.
