Q. Do I have to send a lunch with my child or can they buy one on campus?
A. All youth program students must bring their lunch each day. Refrigerators are available.

Precollege program students may bring their lunch or choose to go to our campus cafeteria, which offers sandwiches, salads, pizza, and more. Allow approximately $7 per day for lunch.

Q. Can you tell me what other families live in my area so I can arrange carpooling?
A. Due to FERPA regulations, we cannot release student information.

Q. Are scholarships available?
A. Unfortunately, no scholarships are available for summer 2015 youth and precollege programs in the arts.

Q. The program I want to enroll my child in is full. What can I do?
A. Call (914) 251-6511 and ask to have your child placed on the program waiting list. If anyone withdraws, your child may be able to enroll. And, if enough children are on the waiting list, a new section may be created.

Q. What is your Tax ID number? I need it for child care reimbursement.
A. The Federal Tax ID/Employer ID number is 14-6013200.

Q. My child cannot attend for an entire session. Can the tuition be prorated?
A. Your child is welcome to attend for however many days within each session that he or she is available, if approved by the lead instructor of the program. However, the college cannot prorate the tuition. In addition, students who do not attend 80 percent of the precollege programs are not eligible to receive the certificate of attendance.


Q. What should my child wear?

  • Students using paint, etc. (Young Artists, Creating Comic Books, Visual Arts Institute, etc.) should wear old clothing or bring a smock.
  • Performing arts students (Youth Musical Theatre, Young Actors, Acting Intensive, Creative Vocal Lab, Vocal Intensive, Shakespeare Workshop, Songwriting Workshop) should dress comfortably for movement and exercise in air-conditioned buildings and summer weather. Musical theatre students must bring their own jazz shoes.
  • Students using cameras (Young Photographers, Photography Institute, Young Filmmakers, and Filmmaking Institute) should dress comfortably for air-conditioned buildings and summer weather and for whatever they might be photographing.
  • Students in writing and computer lab–based programs (Creative Writing Institute, Young Journalists, Journalism Institute, Video Game Creation and Animators, Minecraft™ Designers and Modders, and Code Breakers and App Designers) should dress comfortably for air-conditioned buildings and summer weather.
  • Because of the paving tiles throughout the campus, “flip-flops” are strongly discouraged.


Q. Are the buildings air-conditioned?
A. Yes

Q. Will Early Drop-Off and/or Extended Day staff be available before 8 a.m. or after 5:30 p.m.?
A. Staff will not be available before 8 a.m. or after 5:30 p.m. Please plan to drop off and pick up your child promptly at these times to avoid additional fees.
