Admissions Process

In New York City, students apply to high school during their 8th-grade year. Current first-time 9th-grade students can also apply to programs with 10th-grade seats. Please speak to your counselor to learn about the application deadline for students entering high school in fall 2022.

CHHS will conduct virtual open houses throughout the Fall and Winter. Please click the link below to see specific dates and times!

The Cobble Hill School of American Studies is an educational option school. Designed to serve a wide range of academic performers, Ed Opt schools use the English Language Arts (ELA) state test scores from 7th grade and identify the top 16% of scores, the middle 68%, and the lowest 16%. Half of the students who gain admission to an Ed Opt school will be matched based on their rank of that school, while the other half will be selected randomly.

Preference will be given to students who select Cobble Hill as their first choice. Priority will also be given to students who are eligible for Free or Reduced Price Lunch (based on family income) for up to 50% of seats.
