A School Without Walls

Beginning in September 2022, A School Without Walls will offer two new NYC high school learning options, a hybrid program and a virtual program.

  • These new hybrid and virtual programs educate students through interdisciplinary projects, real-world learning, and community-facing action.
  • Giving high school students the opportunity to pursue their interests and passions as the core of their school experience––to study subjects they truly care about in-depth––empowers them to excel and work together to transform their communities. 

All NYC students entering grade 9 this fall are welcome to apply to either or both programs.

Apply by July 6, 2022!

Here's how:

  • Log in to your MySchools account at MySchools.nyc and visit A School Without Walls' profile page, you’ll see both programs listed. 
  • To apply, just click the star next to one or both programs’ names––for each of these programs, favoriting (starring) it is how you apply.

How Offers Are Made

If there are more applicants than seats, offers will be made by a random lottery. 

  • Students who apply by July 6 may receive an offer in mid-July. 
  • If you get an offer to either or both of these programs, you will be able to choose between your current high school offer and the new program(s). 
  • After offers are released, waitlists will open.

    • Students who add themselves to the waitlist will be considered in chronological order by when they joined.
