The New York Film Academy (NYFA) is extremely proud of our students, faculty and staff who have cooperated together to quickly and smoothly transition the NYFA learning experience to an online platform in an attempt to protect both our NYFA community and the community at large from the spread of COVID-19.
NYFA's COVID-19 Task Force continues to meet daily to analyze the latest recommendations and information from the as well as national, state and local public health and education authorities to ensure that we are coordinating our efforts to implement guidelines and best practices in accordance to these agencies, for each campus as appropriate to that city. Each campus sends regular email updates to their campus populations and posts updates on the NYFA Student HUB portal.
To promote and sustain student wellness, our student support services are providing online counseling services (individual therapy and coping skills groups), creative virtual student life activities, and focused assistance to veterans, international students, and students with disabilities needing help accommodating to the altered learning platform.
