1. Log in to your MySchools.nyc account to explore your child’s middle school options.

2. Add up to 12 program choices to your application. Put choices in your true order of preference, with your favorite program as #1. There is no better strategy. 

3. Apply one of the following ways: 


Some arts programs require applicants to submit a virtual audition by March 1. Beginning this week, interested students can submit audition files online, directly through your MySchools account. Learn how to prepare auditions for specific programs at schools.nyc.gov/MSAuditions.



Directories: A copy of printed admissions guide has been sent home with your child. 

  • As the application opens, families may learn about the admissions process on DOE website where they can both read an admissions guide and watch videos explaining the admissions process.
  • On the bottom of the DOE website, families can find the admissions guide in different languages.

Open Houses and Fairs: 

Visiting a school in person or virtually can help you learn if it may be the right place for your child. It’s also a great way to see how long the trip is from home. Check schools' MySchools pages for links to their websites, as well as for direct links to resources for prospective families, such as information about any in-person or virtual events, or video tours of the school. We recommend contacting schools directly for the most recent information, such as whether and when they will hold open houses, information sessions, and/or orientations.
