Register for an
information session

Step 1: Attend an Information Session

Our information sessions give families the opportunity to meet members of our diverse community, visit our vibrant classrooms, and ask questions about life at Science, Language & Arts International School.

Attending an information session is not required for admission, but it is strongly encouraged, as it provides families an opportunity to experience our school culture and ask questions about our program.

Step 2: Submit Application Materials

The following materials are required to be considered for admission.

If paying the application fee is a hardship for your family, please inform our Admissions Office at

*These items must be submitted to SLA directly by the school/teacher (not by the family). Forms can be e-mailed to: or mailed to: Attn: Admissions Office, Science, Language & Arts, 126 St. Felix Street, Brooklyn, NY, 11217.

Step 3: Child Visit & Family Meeting (Pre-K and up)

Upon receipt of your completed application and application fee, our admissions team will contact you to schedule a visit for your child and a family meeting. Pre-K and Kindergarten applicants will participate in an informal playgroup in English (50 minutes) facilitated by SLA faculty members. Applicants for Grade 1 and higher will be scheduled for a school-day visit of a half to a full day, depending on grade level.
