HCZ Promise Academy Charter Schools enrolls children in grades K-12, with preference given to those living in our 97-block Zone. There are no application or tuition fees.
Enrollment for 3-year-olds
Three-year-olds are encouraged to apply now so that they can start kindergarten at Promise Academy after they finish preschool.
Once you apply, your child has the opportunity to be entered into a lottery and assigned a random number. If your child’s number is called during the lottery (to be held summer 2023), they will be accepted into Promise Academy and will begin kindergarten at the start of the 2025-2026 school year. If your child is not entered into the lottery, or their number is not chosen during the lottery, they will be placed on a waitlist.
To find out your child’s number on the waitlist, call 646-539-5941.
Enrollment for 4-year-olds and older
Once you apply, your child is placed on a waitlist. If your child is accepted, they will join HCZ Promise Academy either in fall 2024 (for those born in 2018) or fall 2025 (for those born in 2019).
To find out your child’s number on the waitlist, call 212-360-3230.
