About Teen Academy

Since 2001, ICP’s Teen Academy program has supported thousands of New York City high school students in using cameras as tools to tell their own stories, build community, and contribute to social change. And now, through a range of online classes, we welcome students from across the country and around the world! The program is designed to cultivate visual literacy, personal vision, and leadership skills through both seasonal and yearlong classes focused on the past, present, and future techniques involved in imagemaking and visual culture.
