Pratt PreCollege students at work

Every summer, we welcome students who are not registered for a degree, to enroll in courses by which you can earn college credits.

Center for Art, Design and Community Engagement K-12

School of Continuing and Professional Studies


Pratt Institute’s PreCollege programs in the School of Continuing and Professional Studies provide high school students with college-level art, design, and creative thinking courses modeled after the Institute’s undergraduate offerings. Held during fall, spring, and summer sessions, classes are taught by Pratt faculty who are committed to sharing their expertise in the fields of art and design. Pratt’s PreCollege programs give high school students the opportunity to develop their skills, build a body of work, and preview the college experience.  

Summer Credit Intensives

Courses are designed for college students and adult learners (19 years+) seeking to develop or enhance skills in their chosen discipline for academic or professional objectives.
