Students will be accompanied by instructors and/or program staff during class site visits and official program activities.
During free time, students are able to travel around New York City with another student by using our checkout system. Students must complete a regular leave request through Boardingware indicating their destination, name of their "buddy" and expected return time. Students then proceed to the Welcome Desk to have their request approved and officially check-out. Students who would like to leave campus independently (without another student) or for longer than four hours must complete special leave request through Boardingware and receive parent/guardian approval.
We recommend that students and parents/guardians discuss safety and guidelines prior to their arrival at Summer Academy. Parents should feel comfortable allowing their students to move unsupervised throughout New York City during their off time.
