Families may begin the application process for the 2023-2024 school year via MyHA. You can start the process right away, and there is no fee to apply.

Children applying to kindergarten must be five years old by September 1 of the year they enter kindergarten. Applications are accepted during the fall prior to entry. 

The family application form and preliminary tuition worksheet are due by November 30. You should also schedule your child’s in-person playdate (Saturday, November 19 or Saturday, December 10) and FLI Assessment (flexible but must be completed by January 2) as soon as possible via myHA. 

You are encouraged to attend our “Getting to Know Harlem Academy” events. Please see the calendar for more information and to sign up.
