Admissions Process - for FALL 2017

All students must complete a NYC public school high school application and list Frank McCourt High School (Program Code A21A). You can find all the materials you need at***  and through your child’s 8th grade guidance counselor.

In addition, students must complete an in-person group interview.  The in-person group interview will take place during our information sessions, and therefore you will need to sign up for an information session using one of the links below to fulfill this requirement.  During the interview, students will also engage in a short writing task.  Please bring a pen or pencil!  Only students who complete all parts of the process will be considered for admission.  

Each registration entitles a family (one student) to attend.  If your preferred date is full, please continue to check back regularly as seats are released weekly.  

Students and families who need accessible entry or accommodations for tours, please email Mr. Javier (

If you are unable to attend one of the currently scheduled interview / tour dates, please check in with your child's school counselor  after applications are submitted.  We will be contacting school counselor's for official applicants in late November with special interview/tour dates for those students who listed us on their applications but have been unable to come in.

***Please Note: Our interview process differs from that reflected on the NYC School Finder: we offer information sessions with interviews both during the school day and after school.  All dates are specified below.
