MAD City-As NYC is the music and arts department in City-As-School, one of NYC's most radical transfer public high schools. Utilizing an entirely student-driven, experiential, project-based curriculum, our students develop a professional body of work under the guidance of NYC’s top creatives.
MAD Academy is a pre-professional training initiative that was developed as a collaboration between students, teachers and mentors to fill the need of providing students direct training in design, arts, and music under the guidance of NYC’s top creative industry professionals. CAS students want a space to be able to create their own work while being exposed to the newest trends and technologies. They want to build a community for themselves as artists and then link to NYC’s leading creative thinkers. They are all incredibly passionate and talented students who have previously not been given the support to pursue their dreams.
