Our School

Our Vision

Through the study of media arts, every L.I.F.E. Academy High School student will demonstrate college readiness, positively impact the community, and creatively frame their understanding of the world through the analysis of multiple perspectives.

Our Mission

As a New York City DOE high school, we believe in the academic personalization and support of our students. L.I.F.E. (Learning by Integrating Film Education) Academy is a small, safe, college preparatory environment where students pursue their learning in an atmosphere supported by the entire school community. Through the integration of media arts and academics, L.I.F.E. Academy students develop creative and technical skills to prepare them for college and career endeavors. Teachers emphasize inquiry, project, and performance-based learning to engage the whole child. Students are encouraged to think critically, develop their unique talents, and give back generously to the community.
