Pre-College Summer Academy

On Friday, August 10th, Parsons Scholars Program celebrated the accomplishments and lessons learned by the newest class of Scholars.  Before entering their junior year of high school, this dedicated group explored their areas of interest during all-day studio classes for two weeks in August in the Pre-College Summer Academy at Parsons in classes such as Digital Video & Photography, Animation, Graphic Design, Illustration, Painting & Drawing, Architecture, Accessory Design and Printmaking.

In addition to making friends from across the country as well as across the globe, the Scholars explored the city during class field trips and were given a taste of a fast-paced college environment with time-consuming homework assignments.  The photos below are evidence of their growth and commitment.

The Open Studio gave the Scholars a chance to witness their peers' accomplishments while getting a taste of the courses they're interested in for future semesters.  

Congratulations on another successful session, Scholars!

Scholars Class of 2012

Last night on August 2, 2012 we celebrated the graduation of 13 Scholars from our program. We had a great time celebrating their hard work, as well as that of Stacy, their devoted and tireless coordinator. They might be leaving the program and we won't see them every Saturday morning anymore but, as we all know, once a Scholars, always a Scholar!

The scholars line up for the paper airplane throw, a new tradition!

After the ceremony, the seniors make time to pose and get silly, as expected.
