Applications are currently being accepted for the 2021 New York State Summer School of the Arts (NYSSSA).

The four-week summer program will be held fully online to ensure safety during the unprecedented COVID-19 crisis. Tuition will be free for all students who qualify, fostering equity by allowing students who may not have been able to participate otherwise. Students will be able to experience intensive work and interaction with internationally acclaimed artists and performing arts companies.

Students in grades 8-12 throughout New York State are encouraged to apply online at http://www.oce.nysed.gov/nysssa. Auditions and portfolio reviews will take place online in January and February.
