High School Academy in Florence


Summer 2018 course schedule will be available in January 2018.

The NYU School of Professional Studies (NYUSPS) is pleased to offer a one-week, transformational summer learning experience for high school students at Villa La Pietra—NYU's center in the heart of Florence, Italy.

Students will be immersed in the rich culture, art, and history of this magnificent Tuscan city, as they delve into academic content that is closely tied to the surrounding region. Days will be spent in the classroom and on field trips. Evenings will allow for time to relax and for supervised extra-curricula activities.

As one of the top "style" cities in the world, Florence is the perfect place to learn about the business of fashion. Join us for a comprehensive program of study that has been developed to provide students with an introduction to this growing field that is grounded in a truly unique international perspective.
