“I met a lot of new and interesting people. I successfully completed a research project and comfortably presented in front of an audience. I have gotten to know and love this museum setting.” – Tyler Lee, 2012 Student Historian

Sunday Scholars: Hands-on History for Teens
Sunday Scholars is a seven-week program for history-loving high school students, grades 9-12, that offers an exciting opportunity to research objects within the New-York Historical Society’s extensive collection of historical artifacts and create a multi-media project that tells their story. The program seeks to strengthen visual literacy skills and the ability to conduct in-depth historical research.
The New-York Historical Society in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History offers Saturday Academy, a free, seven-week program for students in grades 8–12 that offers courses in American Studies and SAT prep. With no homework or tests, these courses offer fun and interesting information on the bits of history that don’t always find their way into the classroom. Students may take one class or two. All classes are offered twice, at 10-11:30 am, then again at 11:40 am-1 pm.
