ARCHIVED: New High School Programs

In a move to share its distinctive blend of academic rigor, centrality of creativity in the curriculum, and superb teaching with area high school students, Sarah Lawrence College is offering a broad, new range of intensive for students entering 10th, 11th and 12th grades. The deadline for registration is June 16.

Course offerings include screenwriting; poetry; story, memoir and essay writing; ceramics, painting and digital arts; dance; theatre arts; Spanish and Latin American literature; and a science course on brains and computers.

Classes will be limited to 15 students or fewer, depending on the discipline. During the two week, intensive course, each student will be given the opportunity to work one-on-one with the teacher, the hallmark of the Sarah Lawrence pedagogy.

“We are delighted to be able to offer programs to high school students that will capture the ‘Sarah Lawrence difference,’” said Sarah Lawrence President Michele Myers. The College has a distinctive approach to education that combines small classes with individual student-faculty conferences.

Many of the programs’ teachers are award-winning professionals in the New York metropolitan area; a number of whom come from within the Sarah Lawrence faculty. The College is nationally renowned for the incorporation of the arts in the liberal arts curriculum. Its reputation in the sciences has been growing steadily in recent years.
