Applying to the Academy is Easy!

  • Domestic Applicants: Standardized Testing Scores
  • International Applicants: English Testing Scores
  • Skype or in-person Interview

Early Decision Program

Due to the Academy’s small class size, we encourage all students to apply for admissions as soon as possible. Students applying for Early Decision will receive the highest priority for admission. This is a great option for students who have decided the American Hebrew Academy is their “first choice” school.

Applications for Early Decision must be submitted by January 10. If a family is applying for financial aid, the NAIS-SSS financial aid application, must also be submitted by January 10. Notice of admission for early decision will be posted by January 31. No application fee is charged for students enrolled by January 31. Read more about financial aid.

Regular Admissions

Decisions on applications for admission submitted by March 31 will be posted by April 5.

Rolling Admissions

Any application reviewed after the deadlines stated above will be reviewed within two weeks of completion, and pending available space. We understand that some applicants will start the process later in the year, and we will work with each student and family to expedite the admissions process.

  • Early Decision – January 10 (No Application fee charged if enrolled by January 31)
  • Regular Decision – March 31
  • Rolling Admissions – April 1 to July 31
