School Partnerships

Every semester the Outreach Division responds to the needs of several high schools, middle schools and elementary schools in all five boroughs of New York City, providing teachers and students with a free acting class in their classrooms. School partnerships create an opportunity for students to learn and practice acting techniques developed by Stella Adler taught by a team of trained professionals and Adler Ambassadors from the conservatory and alumni. Every in-school experience is designed to complement the daily lesson plan of the teacher, so that the workshop offers students a creative, holistic approach to their studies.
