Pre-College Summer Programs

Try Before You Decide This Summer

NYIT Academy's pre-college summer programs give you a hands-on opportunity to learn about subjects you plan to study in college and what it’s like to be a student at NYIT, making lifelong friends from around the world. In addition, many of our programs feature college admission guidance, faculty lectures and visits to industry-leading firms, resume and portfolio building workshops, and opportunities to participate in a range of city-based cultural activities.
