New York City is one of the safest big cities in the United States. The NYC Summer Academy experience itself is centered around our campus on the Upper West Side, one of the most family-oriented residential neighborhoods in Manhattan. While the residence hall and academic buildings are secured spaces, students should note that our campus is not separated from the city. As always, students should stay alert and travel with caution when leaving campus, and understand that their distance from campus limits the ability of our student life staff to provide support. We encourage students and parents/guardians to 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. Parents have the option to restrict student movement to campus, to the neighborhood of the school or provide student with full access.
