While PCS is an academic college preparatory school, not an arts training institution, the arts are an important and vibrant part of life at PCS. The Professional Children's School is home to some of the most gifted young artists in the world and PCS students have opportunities throughout the year to perform for the school community as well as to enjoy the artistry of their classmates. Visual artists display their work throughout the year around the school.
New York City is America's arts capital and the resources of New York's world-class museums, gallleries, concert halls and theaters form a stimulating backdrop to the school year. Lincoln Center is just a short walk away. Students in all subject areas have the opportunity to visit and explore the city's vast resources on field trips with their subject teachers. The school community attends concerts, ballet performances and theatrical productions as a group from time to time throughout the school year.
