Open Houses and Information Sessions

Open Houses/Information Sessions

We are currently working with the NYC Department of Education on a plan for 2020-2021 admissions with safety and equity in mind. The Department of Education has asked us to wait before we implement the plan we have submitted to them. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

In the meantime please submit your contact information using this form. When we are ready to proceed with our plan, we will send you an email with next steps.
