High School Portfolio Prep

LaGuardia, Frank Sinatra, Art and Design, Bayside and other Art High Schools.

For students in seventh and eighth grades who plan to apply to specialized art high schools, we provide a special portfolio, and most important, auditions preparation class. Bridgeview School has the most successful track record with portfolio preparation. Almost all of our students who have been with us for at least a year get accepted to at least one of these schools (LaGuardia, Frank Sinatra and Art and Design).

Special Note! We have had this program since we opened in 2001. In fact, one of our alumni and LaGuardia graduates Iliya Mirochnik is now a member of our outstanding faculty. Getting into LaGuardia and Frank Sinatra is becoming increasingly harder due to growing competition and a much higher number of applicants. Your child's academic grades is criteria number one. Second is the audition and third is portfolio. We can't help you with academics, but we can help with the audition and portfolio, given that you allow ample time to prepare. If your child is new to Bridgeview, he would need at least 3 semesters (9 months) to learn the basics, then proceed to creating a high quality work for the portfolio and then (the last semester and a half) train for the audition. Often times we get applicants who want to take just one semester before auditions. Unfortunately, it is impossible for us to train someone in such a short time, therefore, we ask you not to apply for this program if you only have a few months left.The audition is more important than the portfolio (higher score), because it shows how well and how fast your kid can think visually on his own without any outside help in a highly competitive environment.

Tuition: $500 for 12 weeks of classes including all professional-grade materials.
