About This Program

Parsons Academy offers courses in a variety of art and design disciplines for students in grades 3 through 12 and a certificate program for students in grades 9 through 12. Course subjects range from animation and fashion to 3D design and architecture. These non-credit classes meet for two weeks in August.

Parsons Academy classes are conducted in three groups, divided by traditional school grade level. Students should select the appropriate course by using their grade levels as a guide. In addition to summer courses, we offer a variety of fall and spring courses.
