Dear families,

This is a warm reminder to apply to middle school by March 1, 2022. Submitting your child’s application by the deadline is your best chance at getting an offer to a program you choose!

  • Already applied? Wonderful—you’re all set.
  • Haven’t yet applied? Even if you’re unsure of fall plans, there is no downside to applying now. 


1. Log in to your account to explore your child’s middle school options.

2. Add up to 12 program choices to your application. Put choices in your true order of preference, with your favorite program as #1. There is no better strategy. 

3. Apply one of the following ways: 

  • Online at—Recommended!
  • Through your child’s current school counselor (for public DOE or charter school families) or a Family Welcome Center(for private or parochial school families)


Some arts programs require applicants to submit a virtual audition by March 1. Beginning this week, interested students can submit audition files online, directly through your MySchools account. Learn how to prepare auditions for specific programs at
