Master classes

We organize master classes that bring New York City’s teachers together with our culture’s most brilliant and creative minds. These classes are held in partnership with New York City’s institutions, which join us in honoring exceptional educators by hosting master classes in their most dignified rooms.

Teachers are nominated for master classes. Nominations can be made by any teacher or school administrator. Our general criteria are passion for the subject, creativity in the classroom, and devotion to students. Nominations are evaluated by educators and the 18 strongest nominees are invited to attend. All become Fellows of The Academy and join our growing community of exceptional educators.

Master classes last a full school day. During the morning, teachers spend three hours working with the “master.” In the afternoon, they have a rare opportunity to exchange ideas and strategies with other brilliant educators who share their passion for the day’s topic. Both parts of the day are highly prized.
The Academy for Teachers is entering its ninth year honoring and supporting the great teachers of NYC. We bring them together with prominent experts and artists for inspiring master classes and other events offered in partnership with the city’s great institutions, which join us in showing respect to teachers by hosting our programs in their most dignified and beautiful rooms.

There are now 1,700 Academy for Teachers Fellows working in private, public, and charter schools across the city. Collectively, they teach 170,000 children each year.
