Admissions Process & Timeline
We want our admissions process to be simple, friendly, purposeful and collaborative. We’ve laid out the key aspects of our admissions process below to make it easy for you to see each step along the way.
For our inaugural 2020-21 school year, we welcome all students in grades 6-8, and are especially eager to welcome 6th graders to our community.
There are 3 key steps in our admissions process.
Step 1 – Learn about ATI by attending one or more of our events this fall.
Step 2 – Consider a Shadow Day at our East Village campus to experience a day in the life of ATI.
Step 3 – Submit your application to ATI, which includes financial aid if necessary.
If you are considering transferring to ATI Museum Mile for the current 2019-20 school year, please go here to learn about our transfer process.
Please Note: if you are still interested in applying for the 2020-2021 academic year, please contact the admissions team directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We'd love to meet you!
As a first step, we’d love to meet you!
We have a range of opportunities for interested families and students to learn about ATI, talk to our staff, and begin the admissions process.
Book a Tour. We offer tours Mondays (between 9 AM – 11 AM) and Wednesdays (between 9 AM – 11 AM). Tours are approximately 30 minutes long, and are an opportunity to talk to staff, visit a class, and answer questions. Space is limited. Please sign up here to secure a space on an upcoming tour.
Sign Up for a Shadow Day (strongly recommended)
Once we’ve had a chance to meet and you’re ready to learn more about the ATI experience, we highly encourage, but do not require, students to sign up to attend a Shadow Day at ATI East Village, our other Manhattan campus. Our shadow day allows prospective students to have an authentic day-in-the-life experience of our school, to connect with current students and staff, and to engage in our learning community. We welcome students and provide support and check-ins throughout the day to make sure they have what they need to feel comfortable and engaged.
