With a number of successful years in the UK and China behind the company, Studio Education is very excited to announce further international expansion to New York City. Studio’s first U.S. centre is scheduled to open in August 2018 and will offer the same comprehensive services as in the UK and Shanghai, with a special emphasis on the needs of NYC families. Ultimately, the NYC outpost will serve as the locus of another flourishing learning community rooted in intellectual interest and fostered through hard work.

Families in NYC can already begin to enjoy the educational products provided by Studio Education through the participation in Global Learning tours. Global Learning at Studio Education provides academically and intellectually rigorous study tours to countries all over the world. Students begin their tour six months prior to the arrival at the onsite location by participating in our online classroom. This component of the course introduces students to the context, essential knowledge, and core concepts, which the trip is organized around. These elements provide the academic foundation that makes the possibilities for situational learning endless. On location, students explore heritage sites alongside experts, visit museums and exhibitions, encounter the physical spaces of nature and architecture as well as synthesize the morals, values, and politics of the people.

Another opportunity for NYC families to join the Studio Education community before fall semester courses officially begin is through Studio’s own NYC Film School. Offered in cooperation with British Theatre company Four of Swords, this exciting week-long program will provide a ‘full fat’ film-making experience for aspiring actors and auteurs aged 10 to 14. Students will pursue their ideas from script through to final cinematic masterpiece, working on every aspect of film-making in between. The camp will culminate in an evening showcase of the School’s final cinematic production.
