High Schools 

The 4A's has deepened its efforts to prepare talented students for careers in advertising, and now works with two accredited institutions to provide industry-centered preparation for such careers, for high school and beyond.

IAM

The High School for Innovation in Advertising and Media (IAM) was established in 2008 as the first public high school committed to preparing students for careers in advertising and media. In 2012, the school earned certification from the City and State New York, as an accredited institution and graduated its first class.

For more information about the school, visit IAM's website.

MECA

In 2013, the 4A's formed a partnership with CUNY and the NYC Department of Education, establishing the Manhattan Early College School for Advertising (MECA). MECA, the first six year program dedicated to pipeline high-potential youth into our industry, will provide graduates with a credential, a high-school diploma, and Associates Degree at no cost.

For more information, visit the MECA website.

For ways to get involved, contact Julius Dunn (jdunn@aaaa.org).
