Would your high schooler be interested in spending two weeks in New York City or Washington DC diving into unique academic pursuits which take advantage of the best these cities have to offer? The New York Times Summer Academy offers high schoolers two week courses in June -August which cover a host of great topics including “Diverse Voices in Journalism”, “Immigration in New York: Law/Journalism/Culture”, “D.I.Y. Filmmaking”, “Public Policy and Activism”, and “Secrets, Lies and Whistleblowers: Reporting on National Security”. The instructors are New York Times journalists, industry experts and thought leaders. This a residential program (but is available for day students as well). It is pretty pricey ($5,150 plus materials fees for Day students; $5,750 plus material fees for residential students), but there is financial aid available.
