All NYC families with children born in 2018, 2019, and 2020 are invited to join us at a virtual information session covering 3-K, pre-K, kindergarten, and Gifted & Talented admissions. After the presentation, we’ll respond to your questions.

During each online event, we’ll walk you through each of the elementary admissions processes. We’ll cover how to learn about schools and programs, and their priorities, using the online school directory at MySchools Events Calendar.

Past Events 

  • In late May and early June 2022, we held virtual events about the Gifted & Talented (G&T) admissions process for children entering kindergarten or grade 1, 2, or 3 in September. After a presentation on G&T program types, eligibility, and how to apply, we responded to families' questions. Each event covered the same topics, though each event offered different interpretation supports.
  • In fall 2021 and winter 2022, we hosted a series of virtual events about 3-K, pre-K, and kindergarten admissions. At each event, we walked families through how to create your MySchools account, explore your school and program options, and get ready to apply. Each event covered the same topics, though some events were updated to reflect the opening and closing of the kindergarten application. Different events offered interpretation services across nine different languages.
  • In summer 2022, we hosted a series of virtual events about 3-K, pre-K and kindergarten waitlists. Each event covered the same topics. Different events offered interpretation services across nine different languages.
