Education information

Nowadays, studying at private schools in New York gives an opportunity to get decent and prestigious education. Actually, students who graduated from prestigious schools in New York have high chances to easily enter selected colleges and universities, build a successful career and become qualified specialists.

It's essential to follow 5 main rules to enter a NY school:

  • Deadline for applications

You should start collecting documents and submitting applications at least one year before the expected beginning of studies. Most prestigious private schools in New York are incredibly in demand, and the competition for each place is very high. On the other hand, public schools have the right to accept students from any district - therefore, they have an opportunity to accept the maximum number of students.

  • Necessary documents

In addition to the standard set of documents (ID card, application, ID photographs) you will need to show:

  1. Report card with grades from the previous place of study (data for the last 2-3 years )
  2. Letters of recommendation from teachers (mainly from teachers of English and mathematics)
  3. Recommendation from the class teacher
  4. All certificates, cups, medals, letters of gratitude

Actually, everything that highlights the student as a prospective entrant is useful. Remember that the most gifted and talented students can count on good scholarships and grants, which will save you the costs of studying.

  • Level of English proficiency

It's worth noting that in order to be a successful student at NY schools, you need to know the language almost at the level of native-speaker. Private schools in New York demand to present a certificate of language proficiency (IELTS or TOEFL). Moreover, additional examinations and entrance tests are also arranged. If your level of knowledge is insufficient , it's possible to take language courses in advance. For example, at summer camp or for academic trimester.

  • Tuition fees

Private prestigious schools in New York are expected to be expensive: the cost of the academic year can reach $30000. Tuition fees depend on rankings and prestige of the chosen school, its reputation and location. Talented students can receive a scholarship or a grant - but before submitting an application and obtaining a visa you must confirm your financial solvency without additional support (statement of account, bank deposit, sponsorship letter, etc.).

  • Residence options

Most prestigious private schools in New York usually take care of comfort living conditions for students in advance. Students are provided with places in residences that are most often located in a separate building. It is also possible to arrange accommodation in a host family: you can be absolutely calm, as all members of the family are carefully selected and constantly checked by the school staff. It's a great opportunity for foreign students to be immersed into cultural and language environment of the country.

Application deadlines for New York private schools

Ideally, you should take care of collecting documents and submitting applications at least a year before the expected start of studying. This is due to the fact that the most rated and prestigious private schools in New York are incredibly in demand, and the competition for each place is very high. Unlike public schools, which are free, but linked to a specific area of residence, private schools have the right to accept students from any district - therefore, a wide range of students is interested in admission. 

Documents required to enter private schools in New York

In addition to the standard set of documents (ID card or passport, completed application, passport photographs), you will need to present a report card with grades from the previous place of study (data for the last 2-3 years), a letter of recommendation from teachers (mainly from English and mathematics teachers). Also, a recommendation from the class teacher and all available diplomas, certificates, cups, medals, letters of thanks - all that distinguishes the student as a promising applicant will come in handy. Remember that the most gifted and talented students can count on good scholarships and grants, which will save costs.

English proficiency to study in private schools in New York for foreign students

Obviously, in order to study in an American school, you need to know the language almost at the native level. Private schools in New York will be asked to present a certificate of language proficiency (IELTS or TOEFL). Additional exams and entrance tests are often arranged. If you doubt the quality of your language proficiency, SMAPSE experts recommend to attend language courses in advance (for example, a summer camp or academic semester). 

Tuition fees at NY private schools

Private prestigious schools in New York are expensive: the cost of an academic year can reach $ 30,000. The price depends on the ranking and prestige, the reputation of the institution, its location, the level of campus equipment and comfortable living conditions. Remember that there is an opportunity for talented students to receive a scholarship or a grant - but before applying for a visa you must confirm your financial viability without additional support (account statement, bank deposit, sponsorship letter, etc.).

Accommodation options for foreign students in NY

The most prestigious private schools in New York usually take care of the comfort of their students in advance: they are given places in residences, which are most often located in a separate building or in a neighboring area. It is also possible to arrange accommodation in the host family: you can be absolutely calm, as all family members are carefully selected and constantly checked by the school staff. Living in a host family is a great opportunity to immerse in the cultural and language environment of the country that makes studying as effective, as possible.
