  • Mannes Prep is proud to offer summer programming ranging from one to three weeks in length. Summer programs take place at The New School in the historic West Village. Mannes Prep connects with our New School and Open Campus partners to create innovative, cross-disciplinary programming. Our three-week offerings are open to students ages 16-18, and participants earn three college credits upon completion of the course. Our one-week offerings are audition-based spanning a variety of subjects and are open to students from grades 2-12.

    Audition-Based Programs

    Out of an abundance of caution and in the best interests of our students, the university has canceled all on-campus programming through August 2020.
