• FAQs

    How can I obtain an application to apply to Millennium High School?
    Millennium High School does not accept applications directly either by email or in person. Traditionally, applications are submitted online during the New York City’s Department of Education's high school enrollment admissions process in the fall. The forms are completed in 8th grade with the middle school guidance counselor. If you are a current 9th grade student interested in applying for a 10th grade seat, please request an application from your current high school guidance counselor.

    Note: If you have just moved to New York City or are applying from private/parochial school, please visit a Family Welcome Center at the New York City Department of Education for information on enrolling in the New York City public school system. Please call 311 or go to the Family Welcome Center website for the one closest to you.

    What is the admissions code for Millennium High School?
    Our admissions code is M25A

    When is the deadline for high school applications?
    Please check with your middle school or the Family Welcome Center website for the application deadline.

    Can students who live outside of Manhattan or District 2 apply?
    Yes, any student living in any of the five boroughs of New York City can apply. However, as a screened school, we give admission priority to students who live or attend school south of Houston Street in Manhattan, then to the rest of New York City.

    What is the selection criteria for admission to Millennium High School?

    90% average (you do not need 90+ in every course rather we look for an average of 90 across the four core subjects: math, science, social studies and ELA)
    10 or fewer combined absences and latenesses for the school year
    Level 3 or 4 on standardized exams
    Which grade do you consider for the selection criteria?
    Applying to 9th grade: we look at 7th grade
    Applying to 10th grade: we look at 8th grade

    What if I have more than 10 combined absences or latenesses?
    If there were unique medical issues and/or extenuating circumstances that contributed to the 10+ more absences/latenesses on file, we will take that into consideration in review of your application. Please make sure your middle school has proper documentation (i.e. doctor's note) for those absences or latenesses before you submit your application. Also, please mail a copy of this documentation to us, to the attention of: Admissions Department, Floor 13. Make sure your name and current school are written at the top.

    Should I submit my report card?
    Yes. If you are applying from a private or parochial school, please mail your child's transcript to:

    Millennium High School 
    Attn: Admissions Department
    75 Broad Street, Floor 13
    New York, New York 10004

    Note: Do not send your report card if you are currently attending a New York City public school. We receive records of grades, test scores, and attendance directly from the New York City Department of Education.

    Do I need to take an entrance examination?
    No. We are not a testing school.

    Do I need to make an appointment for an interview?
    No. We do not conduct interviews as part of our admissions process.

    Should I submit a teacher recommendation?
    No. We do not take teacher recommendations into consideration as part of our admissions review.

    May I visit the school before listing Millennium on my application?
    Yes.  We welcome 8th grade students applying to high school and who live or attend middle school in Manhattan to visit our school during the fall admissions season. Registration is required to attend.  Please go to our School Tour page for more information.

    How do I register for a tour?
    You must register through our website (see above). Due to the high volume of requests, we do not accept emails or phone calls.

    What if all of your tours are booked?
    We are a small school located in an office building. For safety reasons, we can only register a maximum of 200 people per tour. Unfortunately, we do not have the resources to tour every family who would like to see the school.

    Will I still be able to apply to Millennium if I don't attend a school tour?
    Attending a school tour has no impact on admissions. If you are not able to register for a tour, but would like to see the school, please take a look at our virtual school tour and the photo gallery on our homepage. You can also find a ton of information about Millennium by checking out each tab on our website.
