Admission to The School of The New York Times’s DC Summer Academy program is competitive. All applications are carefully reviewed by our admissions committee. Admissions officers seek talented student leaders with diverse interests, ambitions and writing styles. The committee strives to select critical thinkers who will contribute to a well-rounded, and academically engaging community of students. Each application is reviewed holistically and qualified students who have demonstrated a genuine interest in Summer Academy as well as a strong academic background will be considered for admission to the program. Our goal is to accept as many qualified students as possible and to ensure we are accepting the right students into the right program for them while space remains.
