Summer Programs for High School Students at Sarah Lawrence College PDF Print Email


By Patricia Pasquale, Assistant Vice President for Marketing & Communications, Sarah Lawrence College

Mar. 28, 2018:  Whether it's filmmaking, creative writing, social justice, or building assistive technology devices for children with disabilities, Sarah Lawrence College is offering a wide range of summer programs that will allow high school students to explore their interests and prepare for college.

Students can live on campus for most courses, offering them a taste of the college experience, or commute to classes, offering flexibility.

“At Sarah Lawrence, we offer immersive experiences that can be life-changing,’’ said Kody Trauger, director of professional and summer programs. “This year we have added an exciting new computer programming course in which students collaborate with children and therapists from a local pediatric center to develop prototypes of assistive technology devices. This is just one example of the unique residential and non-residential summer programs we offer.”

Summer programs are open to rising tenth-, eleventh-, and twelfth-graders. Residential students must be age 15 or older at the start of the program. To learn about costs, schedules, and housing options visit our website.

Code Community: An Assistive Technology Intensive: July 15August 3, 2018

Students will learn coding and hardware design to make their own assistive technology device in just three weeks. Students will visit the Elizabeth Seton Pediatric Center, a residential care center for children with disabilities and medically complex needs. There they will learn firsthand the challenges that children face so they can more effectively design adapted devices to increase accessibility to toys, games, and other objects used daily. Read more.

Social Justice Collective: July 15–August 3, 2018

This program provides students theoretical, historical, and present-day perspectives on social justice issues involving class, gender, sexuality, and race. This interdisciplinary intensive will give students a chance to learn, discuss, and apply their knowledge of the social justice issues that matter most to them. Students will create films, photographs, writing, performance pieces, and more in response to these issues. The program will culminate in an exhibition of each student’s work. Read more.

Filmmakers Collective: July 1August 3, 2018

As part of a long-running partnership, Sarah Lawrence College and the International Film Institute of New York offer a unique opportunity to learn storytelling and develop the skill sets necessary to translate the written page onto the screen.

Bronxville Public Library

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children.  All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
