New York/Dalton Program: There is no formal housing provided

for high-school age students for the New York

City/Dalton program. If it is a New York venue to which

your child is committed, contact Anita Gan and she will

assist your child on an individual basis. Remember, there

is no after-hours supervision, so it may be wise to accompany

your child or have a friend or relative nearby for

supervision.

Universal Studios/Los Angeles Program: Housing is at the Oakwood

Apartments. It is not a campus dorm. Two- and fourperson

accommodations are available.

London Kings College Campus: Housing is not on this campus,

but at a nearby college campus which is within walking

distance of the school.

Harvard/Princeton University Campuses: Housing is on campus.

If you want a more campus-oriented support situation,

this is where your child should go.

OUR TAKE: In filmmaking, people who “think outside the

box” are the norm, not the exception, and they are usually

the ones who become successful. The NYFA is an institution

that has become successful largely because of its outsidethe-

box thinking. For the kid who isn’t a big fan of formal

schooling, but is interested in getting an education in something

he or she loves, the New York Film Academy is something

to look into. A summer at the NYFA looks positive on a

résumé. An education from the NYFA, with its long work days

and hands-on training, can prepare a child for all the world

has to offer.

OUR RECOMMENDATION: If your child is serious about the movie

business, this is a strong program and the place to be. The staff

is serious and from “the business.” There are potential advantages

and drawbacks inherent to each venue. The NYFA staff

will work with you. Do your research. It’s really up to you.
