The New-York Historical Society offers Gilder Lehrman Saturday Academy, a free, 6-week program for students in grades 8–12 that offers courses on American history. It also provides free SAT prep for students in grades 10-12 who register for a history class. This spring, the classes take place the following Saturdays: March 1, 8, 15, 22, 29, and April 5, 2014. Each class is offered at two times (the 1st from 10-11:30 am and the 2nd from 11:40 am to 1 pm.) Students can take up to two of the following courses: One Hundred Years Ago: America from 1912-1918, Protest Music the Rocked the Nation, Living in Scandalous Times: Dark Moments in History, and SAT Prep.

All classes take place at the New-York Historical Society, 170 Central Park West (at 77th Street).

I have notified my parents of my intention to attend Saturday Academy, and I have obtained their permission to do so. I understand that I must bring the signed release forms to the first session in order to continue my participation in the Saturday Academy program. The release forms will be sent to the e-mail address provided in registration before March 1.

I understand that I must attend all Saturday Academy Sessions to receive a Certificate of Participation. Only one excused absence is permitted.
