New Student Orientation

*We strongly encourage all new students to attend a New Student Orientation Session. No RSVP required. Simply arrive at the time that works best for your family.

Spring Workshop Orientation - March 29, 2014. Time: 2pm only.
LOCATION: John E. Reeves Great Hall. Enter on 28th St.

Summer Live and Workshop Orientation - June 22, 29 July 2, 3, or 6, 2014 Time: 11am and 2pm.

DURATION: The Orientation lasts about one hour after which students are encouraged to explore the campus and obtain FIT ID cards.

The Orientation presentation lasts about 30 minutes and includes an additional 30 minute question and answer period. FIT will not be able to provide a make-up orientation therefore, your child should follow the instructions for the first day of class. Orientation highlights are posted below.

NOTE: Orientation Days are the only days that parents and other guests are permitted on the upper floors of the campus. If you wish to visit the school and view your childís classroom, you may do so only on Orientation Days. You may visit the campus any other time, but you will only have access to the campus lobbies and first-floor offices.
At this session students learned about:

  • The rules and policies of the program (calling in sick, earning grades, leaving early, security protocol, etc)
  • Find out about classroom assignments
  • Be able to tour the campus with your family
  • Make changes to your schedule (upon course availability)
  • Obtain a map of the classrooms/campus
  • Tour the neighborhood
  • Meet other Precollege students from your area
  • Obtain your Security ID card

If you are unable to attend an Orientation session, you may review the digital presentation that will be posted below.

You will also need to make arrangements with Security to obtain an FIT photo identification card before the first day of class (212-217-7777) to enter the building on Opening Day.

Security Identification Cards: You must get an FIT ID card before the start of classes. To obtain an FIT ID card, bring a copy of your schedule to the Security Office located in D-404. You may get your card on Orientation Day, but lines may be very long. No ID cards will be issued on the first day of classes.

Returning students do not need to get new ID cards, they will be issued an updated sticker in their first class.
Precollege Workshop students will be given a temporary ID at check-in on Opening Day.
