Continuing Education - Youth and Precollege

Serious Foundation… Serious Fun

Welcome to the Youth and Precollege Programs in the Arts at Purchase College, State University of New York! Founded in 1991, these summer programs are much more than camps.

Students experience a rich environment full of exciting beginnings, new friends and achievements, as well as growth and independence. Students are immersed in a variety of exciting and enriching opportunities such as songwriting, acting, architecture, visual arts, creative writing, filmmaking, video game and app creation, voice, fashion, musical theatre, and more.

They study with amazing artists and educators who are assisted by Teacher’s Assistants (TAs) – undergraduates most often majoring in that discipline – in programs where the staff to student ratio is no more that 10:1. Students are inspired by our scenic 500 acre campus and are able to experience Purchase College, SUNY while enjoying an outstanding education in their areas of interest and work with other students who share a passion for the arts.

We hope that you choose Purchase College, SUNY for your child’s summer experience. It is sure to create many treasured memories for your entire family.

It's a wrap! Thank you for making 2014 a fun and memorable summer!
We hope to see you in 2015!
