Hunter College Elementary School (HCES) has just updated its Admission Procedures (http://hces.hunter.cuny.edu/?m1=1&m2=1) page for the Fall 2013 applications.

Below are some of the key details:

Applications to HCES must be completed via our online form. A link to the application site will be available at the bottom of HCES' Admission Procedures (http://hces.hunter.cuny.edu/?m1=1&m2=1) page on AUGUST 20TH, 2012.

Age Requirements - Applicants for the September 2013 kindergarten class must be born during 2008: January 1, 2008 through December 31, 2008.

Residency Requirement - Only Manhattan residents may apply to HCES. All families whose children progress to Round 2 will be required to submit New York State income tax documentation to prove residency. No addresses that contain a P.O. Box, a business name,“in care of” a third party, or outside of Manhattan will be accepted.

From the date of submission of the application, families will have a three week window within which they must schedule and complete their child’s testing. Please make sure that you are available during this time period before you submit your application.

Those who apply between August 20th and September 3rd will have a deadline of September 22nd. Weekend and holiday testing is available. Testing begins on Tuesday, September 4th, 2012.

You will receive contact information for four testers. Families may contact ONLY one to make an appointment. Testers will not make appointments with families who do not have an ID number or deadline.

Signed Confidentiality Consent Form - The Confidentiality Consent form is where parents must affirm that their child has neither been tested with nor been exposed to any test-related materials from the SB-V in the last year.

Approximately 250 spaces are available for the on-site assessment. In mid-December, the eligibility score will be posted on this website and parents will receive a letter as to whether or not their child will receive further consideration.

Round 2 will take place over TWO weekends: January 19th and 20th AND January 26th and 27th, 2013.

The Director of Admissions offers placement to 25 boys and 25 girls based upon the recommendations of the HCES Admissions Committee. Selection is primarily determined by the observations collected during Round 2.

A waiting list of 12 boys and 12 girls is generated from the Round 2 finalists. The first 6 wait listed children on each list are ranked 1-6. After those places, admission is offered at the discretion of the Selection Committee. The waiting list remains active until the beginning of school in September 2013.
