Programs

Summer Programs

Every summer, Pratt invites high school students to participate in an immersive college-level program at its Brooklyn campus. Intensive courses are offered in disciplines of art, design, architecture, and creative writing, supporting students to discover their creative passion, develop technical skills, and build a strong portfolio for college admission while earning elective college credits. 

Students unable to join us on campus are invited to take part in our summer programming online.
