Fall High School Workshops

FIT's Precollege Workshops are fun, short programs designed to introduce you to some of the unusual and creative topics FIT specializes in. Spend four days on our New York City campus learning a specific skill or technique, or delve into one of the many career opportunities FIT prepares students for.
