Happening Now: Apply to Gifted and Talented!
The application for kindergarten Gifted & Talented (G&T) programs is now open, and the deadline to apply is April 9, 2021. Interested families can apply one of three ways:
Online at MySchools.nyc(Open external link)
Through a Family Welcome Center
By phone at 718-935-2009
For children entering G&T programs in fall 2021, offers will be made differently this year. We will not be administering a G&T test; instead, families and educators will help identify students for accelerated learning.
Sign up for our Gifted & Talented email list: we'll send you updates and reminders throughout the admissions process.
Who Can Apply?
All families with children born in 2016 who live in New York City—including those who have temporarily relocated due to the COVID-19 pandemic—can apply now to enter G&T programs in fall 2021.
We encourage all NYC families with children of this age to apply, including current pre-K public district or charter school students, private or parochial school students, and children who are new to NYC schools. All G&T programs are expected to welcome and support all students including children with accessibility needs, children with disabilities, children who speak a language other than English, and children in temporary housing. All families, regardless of immigration status, are welcome and encouraged to apply!
