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 required for admission. It provides families an opportunity to experience our school culture and ask questions about our program.
Step 2: Submit Application Materials
The application deadline for 2019-20 was December 14, 2018. Please email our Admissions Team (firstname.lastname@example.org) for information on how to apply after this deadline. The following materials are required to be considered for admission.
For all applicants:
- Online Application and Application Fee ($75)
- Confidential School Report* from child’s current school (for Pre-K and up)
For Grade 6 and up:
- Teacher Recommendations (English Language Arts)* from current teacher

If paying the application fee is a hardship for your family, please inform our Admissions Office at email@example.com.
*These items must be submitted to SLA directly by the school/teacher (not by the family). Forms can be e-mailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org or mailed to: Attn: Admissions Office, Science, Language & Arts, 9 Hanover Place, Brooklyn, NY, 11201.
Step 3: Child Visit & Family Meeting (Pre-K and up)
