School of Visual Art's Pre-College Program offers courses taught by the same faculty of leading art professionals who teach in the college's undergraduate degree programs. Students will explore the fundamentals of art and design at a level not readily available in high school.


Summer Pre-College is an intensive three-week program that provides the experience of attending art school in the heart of New York City. Students are immersed in their chosen field of study through unique studio projects and instruction from SVA’s award-winning faculty. Classes are taught Monday through Friday from 9am - 4pm and take place in SVA facilities. The program is further enhanced by a robust offering of evening and weekend chaperoned activities and events that take full advantage of the social and cultural life of New York City.

Pre-College is open to all students who will be enrolled in high school in Fall 2017 and are 14 years of age. Approximately 400 students participate in the summer program and 200 students live in SVA housing. Students living in housing during the program must be mature, responsible and ready for the creative and personal freedom this program allows.

Students register for one course and will receive three college credits and a letter grade for the successful completion of the summer program.
