UASP Designations

Each summer Pratt Institute’s PreCollege program welcomes over 400 high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors to our Brooklyn campus for nearly a month, where they encounter life as an art and design college student.

Students choose a major focus modeled after Pratt’s undergraduate offerings. To complement this chosen major, students are automatically enrolled in foundation, art history, and portfolio development classes. Upon completion of the program, students earn four elective college credits.

Reflecting Pratt’s academic culture, PreCollege students are immersed in their studio practice and actively participating in a rigorous full schedule of classes Monday to Friday. Classes are led by Pratt’s renowned faculty of working artists and professional designers who are committed to sharing their expertise in the field.

Beyond enjoying the beauty of Pratt’s campus in classes or taking advantage of our state-of-the-art equipment and studio spaces, students are provided with opportunities after class and during weekends to explore New York City through lectures and cultural and social events.

PreCollege students get a head start on college by living and studying with peers from across the country and around the world. The program welcomes both domestic and international students with diverse backgrounds and experiences to share a common interest in exploring creative fields in a vibrant urban setting.

The program culminates in an exhibition of students’ work curated in gallery spaces throughout campus. Family members, friends, and members of the creative community are invited to our final exhibition to share in the joy of students’ accomplishments. PreCollege students leave enriched, empowered, and ready to be our future artists, designers, and creative thinkers.


  • Explore the possibility of studying art, design, architecture, creative writing, or cultural studies.
  • Confirm that this is the subject you want to study in college.
  • Develop your skills through college-level coursework, and earn 4 college credits.
  • Develop a body of work for your portfolio to support admission into college.
  • Meet other students who share your interests.
