DC Summer Academy

In an effort to help our students keep learning and pursuing their passions this summer, The School of The New York Times is moving our Summer Academy online for the 2020 session.

Study with Times experts in our nation’s capital.

Our DC Summer Academy gives intellectually curious high school students the opportunity to live and learn in Washington DC, our nation’s capital and the center of politics and social activism. Each two-week course draws on the expertise and unrivaled access of The New York Times and encourages students to take their learning beyond the classroom and into the real world. We encourage students from all backgrounds to apply to DC Summer Academy.

Summer Academy is moving to online for the 2020 session.

Featured Courses

Summer Academy courses are organized by Intensives and Explorations. Intensives dive deep into a specific subject area, while Explorations are interdisciplinary and cover three distinct subjects.
