Applications are currently being accepted for children born in 2013.
Please email to sign up for a tour. In February, applicants come to the school for a play visit in a small group. We send notification by mail in early March, based on the admissions timelines by the Independent School Admission Association of Greater New York (ISAAGNY). Children applying to UPNS must be 2 by September 15 for our entry level Blue Room (ages 2 and 3 years). The school gives priority to currently enrolled students, siblings of current students and of students enrolled within the last five years, and children of full-time faculty, staff and students of NYU.
