Founded in 1970, the New York State Summer School of the Arts (NYSSSA) is a highly-competitive summer arts residential program funded by the New York State Education Department and student tuition. The four week, pre-professional summer curriculum includes individual and group instruction designed to help each student explore and develop their talents in ballet, choral studies, modern dance, visual arts, media arts, orchestral studies, or theatre. At NYSSSA, students work with acclaimed artists, broadening their skill set and developing technique, allowing them to grow as an artist. Students live in a college dorm and take classes from performing and visual artists for 6-12 hours a day, six days a week in their area of concentration. Upon completion of the program, students are awarded one high school credit in the arts, subject to their home district approval. Notification is provided to each student’s school in late fall. Applications are now being accepted.

Students are accepted through either a portfolio review or audition for one or more of the seven component intensives. Auditions take place at locations across the State during the months of January and February. Program and audition information can be found on our website at http://www.oce.nysed.gov/nysssa/
