How to Apply


In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Harlem Academy's team has made changes to the admissions process, including a transition to virtual information sessions and interviews via Zoom. You can reach our Enrollment Director, Jennifer Prince, at 646.799.1166 or with any questions.

Limited spaces remain for September 2021 enrollment.  We use rolling admissions, so there are no specific deadlines in the process. Interested families are encouraged to begin the application process by completing our online interest form and submitting their application materials as soon as possible.


Completing the following steps is required for our admissions committee to make an initial assessment.  
1. Fill out your interest form

Please complete this interest form. Once you have completed the interest form our admissions team will email your log-in information for MyHA

2. Log-in to MyHA and review your admissions checklist

Review your family's admissions checklist in MyHA  and upload and complete the requested admissions materials.  Once you have submitted the requested checklist items, you will receive admissions committee's recommendation for continuing the application process.  The admissions committee recommendations are forwarded within 2 weeks of completing the first phase of the application process. 


3. Phase 2 of your admissions process

Families invited by the admissions committee to continue with the second phase of admissions attend an online family interview and submit online  teacher and personal recommendation questionnaires.  Final recommendations for enrollment will be forwarded to your family within 2 weeks of the completed application date. Your family can review the updates to the status of your application in MyHA.
