Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty when public and social gatherings will be safe to resume, the New York State Education Department has decided that the New York State Summer School of the Arts will suspend programming for the 2020 summer season. This is extremely difficult news to deliver to the hundreds of individuals that make NYSSSA possible each year. These are truly unprecedented times and the health and well-being of everyone is the top priority.  While we are saddened that we will miss working with you in-person this summer, we look forward to keeping in touch and working together in the future.
