How to Apply
For the 2019–20 school year we are operating on a rolling admissions basis if space is available. For the 2020–21 school year, we will begin accepting applications beginning September 9, 2019.
Starting Fall 2019, we will offer a choice of Early Decision or Regular Decision. . .
Early Decision — Once an application is received and the admissions process completed, the family will be notified on the admissions decision. If admitted, families will have 2 weeks to accept or decline the seat. For those applying for financial aid, although a decision on admission may be made early, the financial award may not be processed until the regular decision timeline.
Regular Decision — Those selecting this option will proceed along the usual admissions process and receive notification in line with that of other NY (ISAAGNY) or NJ independent schools.
The Admissions Process
Step 1: Attend an Information Session
Sign up to attend one of our information sessions or tours. If you're unable to attend any of the dates listed, you can schedule a private tour.
Step 2: Apply to HudsonWay Immersion School
Complete the application through our online admissions & enrollment system, SchoolAdmin. Families who would like to inquire about financial aid are encouraged to visit our Financial Aid page.
Step 3: Release Records
For K-6 prospective students we require a Teacher Recommendation and Transcript from your child’s current preschool or elementary school. This form is part of the application checklist available once you submit an application.
Step 4: Schedule a Student Visit / Family Meeting
Upon receiving a completed application, the system will invite all applicants for a school visit (approximately half day for preschool, full day for K-6). We also ask that both parents schedule time for a parent meeting. Students applying for K-6 will spend time in the classroom as well as be assessed in English language arts and math.
Step 5: Admissions Decision
The admissions committee carefully reviews each candidate before a decision is made, and each applicant will be notified of the outcome of this process via email or phone call.
