Purchase College – State University of New York | 2023 Youth and Precollege Programs

We are looking forward to summer 2023 with great optimism!

As always, we are committed to providing high-quality summer enrichment programs for your family. This summer, we will offer 1, 2, and 4 week in-person* programs with many of the same instructors you know and love.
*subject to change due to COVID related conditions

The Youth Programs in the Arts at Purchase College for elementary and middle school ages provide a unique opportunity to spend the summer exploring the visual and performing arts—and more!—under the guidance of experienced instructors and practicing artists. These youth programs are designed to enable the exploration of a variety of artistic genres.

The Precollege Programs in the Arts at Purchase College are for high school students who are passionate artists, actors, performers, musicians, filmmakers, or writers who may have an interest in pursuing these disciplines on a college level. These programs provide portfolio building, audition technique training, and college application enhancement opportunities. Institute students earn certificates based on participation and attendance.

We believe that summer enrichment is powerful and potentially transformational. Be inspired by our scenic campus, learn new skills from amazing artists and educators, and create with other students who share your passion!

About Purchase College

Students study with accomplished artists and experienced educators who are assisted by teacher’s assistants (TAs)—undergraduates most often majoring in the program’s discipline—in programs where the student-to-staff ratio is no more than 10:1. Students are inspired by our scenic 500-acre campus and are able to experience Purchase College while enjoying an outstanding education in their areas of interest and working with other students who share a passion for the arts. Each program concludes with a performance, exhibit, reading, film screening, symposium, or other culminating event for families and friends to showcase the skills that they have learned.
