The High School of Fashion Industries program features an integrated curriculum designed by ICP and HSFI, which includes an in-school foundation photography course, an after-school beginner’s class, and an intermediate documentary workshop. This yearlong program takes place in a teaching facility built by ICP, which includes a ten-station darkroom, a film-processing area, and a studio/classroom. The collaboration culminates in an annual exhibition opening in the Principal’s Gallery at the high school featuring the students’ photographs and writing.
The mission of the High School of Fashion Industries is to provide challenging, creative, and effective career, technical, and academic training for New York City students. The faculty and administration of our school, working with the cooperation of the parents and student body, seek to provide a unique learning experience and a specially tailored program for all students who have an interest in a related field.
