Children enter PS/IS 366: Washington Heights Academy through the citywide application processes 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.

Families applying for Grades 1-5 must fill out a separate application at the school. A Grade 1-5 waitlist will be generated through an in-house lottery process. Parents will be notified if a space becomes available.

Please contact the school at 212-304-3320 to learn about information sessions and school tours.
