Fall and spring classes are designed for high school students to develop their creative voice and build skills in art, design, and creative problem-solving. Courses are modeled after Pratt’s undergraduate offerings and include non-credit or credit-bearing options. Students enrolled in credit-bearing PreCollege classes receive elective credits accepted at Pratt and most colleges and universities.


Students should complete registration with a parent or guardian present. Registration closes 1 week (5 business days) before the start of each course. Early registration is encouraged as space is limited.

PreCollege credit classes are 38% discounted from Pratt undergraduate courses. PreCollege does not currently offer scholarship opportunities or payment plans for fall or spring students. Full payment for courses must be completed before the start of any course. Tuition does not include the cost of any materials or lab fees unless otherwise stated.


Students must meet the requirements below to register for online classes.

  • A laptop or desktop computer with a reliable internet connection

  • Access to a webcam or phone camera

  • A scanner or digital camera

  • All students will be given access to the required digital tools through their Pratt Onekey account (e.g. GSuites, Slack, Adobe Suite, and Zoom). Pratt will use these online platforms to connect students with their faculty and it is the student’s responsibility to check that their region/computer is capable of supporting these various platforms and tools.
