High School Admissions Overview

For Fall 2018 admission, we offer three programs: one program for continuing 8th grade students, and two Educational Option programs for all other 8th grade students.

Educational Option is an Admissions Method under which

  •  the school can see the student’s academic record at the time of application
  • seats are reserved for students with high, medium, and low NYS ELA and Math test scores
    • half of the seats are filled by students who are ranked by the school
    • half of the seats are filled randomly

For Fall 2018, the programs offered for New Students are:

Instrumental Music

Digital Communications and Media

Admissions Priorities for New Students
