Master classes are day-long events that bring select groups of teachers together with our culture’s most brilliant and creative minds. These classes are held in partnership with New York City’s great institutions, which join us in honoring exceptional educators by hosting master classes in their most dignified rooms. Teachers invited to a master class become Fellows of The Academy for Teachers, joining our vibrant community of the city’s strongest educators.
Teachers must be nominated for a master class. Any teacher or school administrator is invited to nominate a K–12 teacher from the New York City metropolitan area. Academy Fellows can nominate themselves. Nominations open about two months before each master class takes place.
We add additional master classes to the calendar when they are finalized.
