High Schools Admissions 2016 and Resources


High School Admissions

As the school year comes to a close, the Office of Student Enrollment welcomes all rising eighth grade students to High School Admissions! 

New York City has more than 400 high schools and over 700 programs. 8th grade or first time 9th grade students and families in New York City complete a single High School application for up to 12 high-school programs and can participate in a separate process for Specialized High Schools. In addition, New York City’s charter schools give families additional public school options. Students new to NYC should visit can find out more information on New Students.

Students with Disabilities

Students with disabilities may apply to all programs listed in the New York City High School Directory, subject to the same admissions requirements as their peers. Students with Individualized Education Programs (IEPs) that recommend a specialized District 75 program or New York State Approved non-public school program are placed through a separate process. However, these students may submit a high school application if their IEP for the following school year recommends programs and/or services in a community school. Read more
