Pre-College Programs

Explore new areas of study; get hands-on experience in robotics, 3-D modeling, and ethical hacking; learn the basics of business; or get a jump start on college credits. New York Tech gives precollege students a taste of college—and in some cases, college credit—through programs designed especially for you.

We also offer high school students the opportunity to enroll in university-approved high school courses during the regular fall and spring semesters as part of our New York Tech Advance program, where they can earn college credits at deeply discounted prices.

High school students may also be eligible to take some of our regular summer college courses. Visit our Summer Registration page to find out more.

Middle School Summer Maker Academy

This online, weeklong academy will engage 10–13-year-olds in hands-on workshops designed to teach 3-D modeling and printing, laser cutting/engraving, and Arduino programming. As a final project, students will build a tech-infused, environmentally friendly, low-impact Smart Building.
