As a public charter school, Bridge Prep is open to all New York State students and will not limit the admission of any student on any unlawful basis, including on the basis of ethnicity, disability, race, creed, gender, gender identification, sexual orientation, national origin, religion, ancestry, athletic ability, or intellectual aptitude or achievement. We do not require any action (such as an admissions test, interview, essay, attendance at an information session, etc.) on the part of potential students or families as a condition of eligibility for enrollment.
Applications will continue to be accepted on a rolling basis through the close of the initial application window at 11:59 p.m. on April 1, 2023. All applications received by this deadline will be included in our 2023-2024 Admissions Lottery. Any application received after the close of the initial application window (11:59 p.m. on April 1, 2023) will be accepted but will be held until after the conclusion of each grades lottery and will be included on the grade’s respective waitlist, along with any students who were not selected in the lottery.
Students will be considered for admission based on the information included on their application at the time of the application’s submission. When applying to Bridge Prep, students should be applying for the grade that they are expected to be enrolled in the upcoming school year. For example, if a student is 1st grade at the time of their application submission, they should be applying for 2nd grade for the upcoming school year. Should a student apply to Bridge Prep after the start of the school year, the student should apply for a seat in their current grade.
In the event that there is a change to the grade that the student is admitted for, or the waitlist they are placed on for the upcoming school year as a result of promotional status determination from the student’s sending school, Bridge Prep will follow its promotional policy to make a determination on the appropriate grade placement for the student at Bridge Prep for the upcoming school year.
