Kindergarten Admissions

If your child was born in 2016 and you live in New York City, your child can start kindergarten in September 2021. All families, including current pre-K students, students with disabilities, and English Language Learners, should submit an application.

The application deadline is Tuesday, January 19, 2021. All families who apply by the deadline will receive a kindergarten offer in April.

    • This option is available 24 hours a day
    • Apply in Arabic, Bangla/Bengali, Chinese, English, French, Haitian Creole, Korean, Russian, Spanish, and Urdu.
