Applicant Visit Days

Prospective Student Visit Days

Prospective student visit days are offered on select days beginning in November, leading up to the February 1 priority application deadline.  After February 1, visit days are offered as the schedule allows. Visitors will be matched with a student host for the day.  If there is a particular interest or favorite class, we’ll try our best to include those in the visit day. The visit day offers prospective students a chance to experience life at NYA, as well as fulfills the interview requirement.
