The Mission of the High School of Fashion Industries is to provide challenging, creative and effective career, technical and academic training for New York City students. The faculty and administration of our school, working with the cooperation of the parents and student body, seek to provide a unique learning experience and a specially tailored program for all students who have an interest in a fashion related field. Our mission has several components:

  1. To offer programs which provide every student with the opportunity to excel: academically, vocationally, technically and socially.

  2. To foster skills and work habits, enabling students to succeed academically, mature socially, and develop physically, leading to success both during and after the high school experience.

  3. To develop programs preparing students to be active and collaborative participants in a democratic multicultural society and a highly complex technological world.

  4. To provide students with applicable hands-on learning experiences, encouraging the development of skills needed to succeed in the fashion industries and/or post-secondary educational experiences. 

  5. To devise programs that create applied learning experiences that merge academic and career skills, helping students see unity within the diversity of learning.

  6. To strengthen ties with the business community, providing students access to the latest innovations and technological advances as well as to special enrichments and on-the-job training.

  7. To foster professionalism and collaboration among the entire school community, drawing upon the unique talents and expertise of that community.
