New Students


Non-Resident Enrollment

If you live outside of New York City and would like your child to attend a New York City school, you must submit a Non-Resident Application. The New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) must accommodate all resident students before enrolling non-residents. 

The deadline to apply to attend a New York City public school as a tuition-paying, non-resident for the 2015-16 school year is August 31, 2015.

Non-resident students are not eligible to attend and may not apply to attend specialized schools, screened/selective schools or programs, gifted and talented programs, or pre-kindergarten programs.  

Tuition Rates

Non-resident students who live outside of New York City's five boroughs must pay tuition based on the rates set each year by the New York State Education Department.

The provisional rates are below.
