and an academic review.

in exploring other high school programs: You can fill
out a Round 2 application and choose from a new list
of programs with availability.

NYC Public High Schools
• Check directory for the requirements of the
program to see if it is a good match
– Some programs have restrictions or give priority
to zoned students
– Look at ratio of seats available to number of
applicants (A program that has 20 applicants per
seat will be harder to get into than a program with
5 applicants per seat).
– Some programs require an essay or interview
Tips for Applying
• Rank Choices in order of preference
– High Schools cannot see how you rank their programs on your list.
– Do not list programs you are not interested in attending just for the
sake of getting in somewhere.
• Include a balance of program selectivity
• Add programs with guaranteed admission
– Zoned programs
