The Arts at York Prep

As a premier NYC prep school, York Prep School offers one of the best arts programs in Manhattan. We’re devoted to providing our students with the tools and resources they need to fully develop all their talents. We pride ourselves on our commitment to giving students’ passions a rewarding creative outlet.

Among the Best Arts Programs in Manhattan

Our private middle school and high school curricula offer courses that emphasize the development and application of students’ artistic knowledge and skills. We’ve designed them for people who are looking for arts programs in Manhattan that offer one-on-one attention: our classes are structured for small class sizes, allowing our teachers to focus on each student’s development on an individual level.

Alongside our arts curriculum, York Prep also offers its students a diverse range of clubs and activities that encourage personal growth along with a deep appreciation for art. Our campus is located within close proximity to both Lincoln Center and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, giving our community easy access to works that are sure to inspire.

An Expansive Visual Arts Program


We at York Prep take a great deal of pride in giving our students the time and space for creative visual expression. We have developed our Visual Arts program to encourage both the appreciation and creation of the visual arts at every grade level.

NYC middle school and high school age children enrolled at York Prep not only learn about the wide range of artistic mediums, but are also taught advanced techniques and values that allow them to understand artistic works at a comprehensive level. This educational process brings out the inner artist in every child and is a major emphasis of our robust Visual Arts program.

An Enthusiastic Community for the Performing Arts


Students of York Prep not only have access to rich and rewarding visual arts courses but also to performing arts courses and extracurricular clubs that encourage theatrical and musical passions. At every curriculum level, we offer our students education in the musical and dramatic arts.

We also believe that a rich community for the performing arts is essential to fostering students’ desire to express themselves. To achieve this engaging performing arts experience, we encourage our students to participate in our many theater and stage clubs and activities. We also produce musical and theatrical programs that give students hands-on experiences with the arts and help develop powerful teamwork and social skills.
