Children enter PS/IS 366: Washington Heights Academy through the citywide application process established by the New York City Department of Education.

  • Families applying for Pre-Kindergarten, Kindergarten or Grade 6 must do so through the NYC DOE's centralized process by listing Washington Heights Academy as a choice on their DOE applications.


  • In accordance with NYC DOE policy, children who are currently enrolled in WHA’s Pre-Kindergarten program receive priority (after siblings) in the Kindergarten admissions process. 

  • Grade 5 students currently attending Washington Heights Academy have priority to continue to Grade 6 at the school. In order to receive this priority, current WHA fifth graders must rank PS/IS 366 as one of their choices on the Middle School Application.

If you would like to apply to Washington Heights Academy, contact Parent Coordinator Alexandra Ulloa at or email the school at
