Engage in the study of social justice at Sarah Lawrence College!

Designed to give high school students an immersive experience into Sarah Lawrence College's pedagogy, this program provides students theoretical, historical, and present-day perspectives on social and cultural issues involving class, gender, sexuality, and race. This interdisciplinary intensive will give students a chance to learn, discuss, and apply their knowledge through the creation of mixed-media art installation pieces. Throughout this process, students will be guided and mentored by members of Sarah Lawrence’s award-winning faculty and renowned alumni. Students will develop their academic skills in a rigorous intellectual environment by focusing on the social justice issues that matter most to them. Students will also explore how creative writing, visual art, performance, and social media impact social justice movements. This three-week program will culminate in an exhibition of each student’s work.

We welcome students entering the 10th, 11th, or 12th grades the following fall. We also welcome students graduating high school in 2018 who are taking a gap year between high school and college. Commuter students must be age 14 or older at the start of the program. Residential students must be age 15 or older at the start of the program.

Full details on the 2019 program will be posted to this site by early November, 2018. Check back soon!
