Key Dates for Admissions

Early April Families receive offer letters.
April-May Families with offer letters contact schools to make an appointment to pre-register. Please see Chancellor’s Regulation A-101 for a list of accepted documents for proof of age and address.
Mid-May PS 101 will hold a Welcome Meeting for incoming families.
May-October Schools manage waitlists in MySchools.


PS 101 is NOT responsible for selecting students or printing mailing offers to families, but will conduct pre-registration as we have in the past and manage waitlists after initial offers go out. If you have any questions about applying to Kindergarten, call 718-935-2009.


To be eligible for admission to Kindergarten in September 2020, students must turn 5 by December 31, 2020 (Born in 2015) and be residents of New York City at the time of pre-registration.
