Harlem School of the Arts (HSA) is one of New York City’s pioneering arts institutions. In 1964, internationally acclaimed concert soprano Dorothy Maynor, brought a gift to Harlem; her fervent belief that world-class training in the arts stimulates the child, strengthens the family and gives pride of ownership to a community. That legacy continues today.
The goal is to preserve access to the arts for every child. Harlem School of the Arts is committed to leveling the playing field by empowering young people from across the multi-cultural and socio-economic spectrum. Of the nearly 4,000 students who participate in our programs, more than 85% are African American or Latino and nearly 50% of students taking classes at our facility receive financial aid or scholarships, or take advantage of the flexibility of extended payment plans. In 2015, HSA celebrated 50 Years and the 50,000 lives it has changed. HSA has awarded more than $1.1 million dollars in Financial Aid & Scholarships.
