We are delighted that you are considering applying to our school and eager to share more information about the SKA family. Our school community is proud to include students from over twenty-two elementary schools throughout the tri-state area and we celebrate the achdut that evolves as they coalesce into a unified group, developing lifelong friendships as they learn and grow together.
We encourage all interested students and parents to attend our Open House, a unique opportunity to meet administrators, faculty and students and learn about what makes our school such a special place! Community Parlor Meetings provide a smaller, more intimate forum in which to hear more about SKA and ask questions of school, student and parent representatives. Applicants are warmly invited to join us for our annual musical production, an enjoyable and exciting evening which provides a further glimpse into student life at SKA.
Before intersession, applicants are invited to attend a “Day at SKA” program of mini classes and activities designed to familiarize them yet further with the academics, student life, and school culture of SKA.
The admissions process begins with the completion of an online application (see below), at which point parents of applicants will be contacted by our office to schedule an interview. Students who wish to spend an additional day at SKA beyond their interview day and the “Day at SKA” program are welcome to do so – please email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule that visit.
Please note that our school requires the Yeshiva HS Placement Exam as part of an incoming 9th grader’s application. Registration will be done through The Jewish Education Project. Participating elementary schools will register their students for the Exam while parents from non-participating schools will have to register individually. If your school does not participate, please e-mail Shelley Hill at The Jewish Education Project for the registration form. Please keep in mind that the registration window is only open for approximately one month and will close in late September.
Kindly call the BJE office at (646) 472-5334 for additional information.
Admissions letters are sent to all students in Mid-February and the deadline for SKA registration is in Mid-March.
