Highest National Standard of Education

Recognized as a leader in performing arts education, our elementary, middle and high school program is created with the guidance of studio teachers, and conforming to New York and California's guidelines for academic education in the Entertainment Industry.

Since the boom in the movie industry in the early 1900s, California has led the way internationally in the education and protection of minors working in the entertainment industry. Major film studios had on-lot schoolhouses where young performers went to school while working.Utilizing the same educational methods originally created for the entertainment industry, the New York City Performers Academy's customized independent learning program offers the highest standard of education to industry-minded students.

Our Mission & Core Values

We believe every child has a choice, every child has a dream, and every child can be a leader. We help students succeed by placing a premium on core values such as self-esteem, personal responsibility, academic and creative performance and accountability, and respect for others. Our year-round academic program enables young talent to professionally study their craft, audition, and perform all while earning their middle school credits and high school diploma. Our Academic Advisors will evaluate each student’s needs learning style and aid in choosing individual options for them. Our teachers are drawn from the pool of California's dually certified  studio teachers and are, therefore,  uniquely qualified with double credentials, and once your entertainment electives are selected, they will tailor a learning program to include academics fused with performing arts training.
