Practice Lab

Students participate in the Practice Lab throughout the academic year. In specialized sessions designed to “practice” skills introduced over the summer, students explore more hands-on content with NYU schools and departments while applying skills related to the college application process, writing, interviewing, networking, and more.

Students have the opportunity to participate in service-learning projects that provide useful leadership training and volunteer experience with local, community-based organizations and NYU schools and offices.

The Practice Lab takes place for 1-2 days in October, December, February, and March. Program dates for the 2021 – 2022 academic year to be determined in summer 2021 and follow the NYC Department of Education academic calendar.

As students move through high school, the Practice Lab focuses more closely on supporting students through the college application process. We’ll help students map their postsecondary pathways and answer questions like, what are my options after high school? What is the FAFSA? When should I apply to college?
