Why NYC Institutes @ Pace University?

Since 1906, Pace University has provided high-quality education with a firm base in liberal learning. It is a private university with two campuses, in New York City and Westchester County, enrolling almost 13,000 students.

Pace University’s lower Manhattan campus is an intellectual and cultural hub on the border of Tribeca and the financial district, between South Street Seaport, Wall Street, and Broadway. With its ideal location, Pace is the perfect setting for a pre-college program.

During our 51 years, we have provided incredible summer experiences for hundreds of high school students. At Summer Discovery, we help you prepare for your transition from high school to college. Our pre-college program combines academics, athletics, and activities to give high school students a great introduction to college life.

Why Discovery Internships New York City?

New York City is one of the greatest cities in the world. With unique opportunities in over 25 industries including medicine, fashion, finance, and entrepreneurship, NYC is an ideal place for a summer high school internship.

Past interns have coordinated fashion shows, learned about financial markets and securities, critiqued scripts for plays and movies, and examined x-rays at veterinary hospitals. Spend your days exploring your interests and your weekends having a great time in “the City That Never Sleeps."
