Thank You For Your Interest In Our Vibrant Learning Community At BASIS Independent Manhattan!

The admissions process at BASIS Independent Manhattan is selective and multi-step to ensure that we spend time getting to know each applicant and family. Applications are now open for the fall 2022 school year!

For families still considering their school choices for fall 2021, please call or email our Admissions team.

In response to the growing demand for our program, we are pleased to share that we opened a new, second campus in Chelsea that will serve Grades 6-12Our founding class of students, faculty, and staff started classes at 556 West 22 Street on September 8, 2021! All applications for Grades 6-12 will be considered for our Upper Campus in Chelsea, while applications for PreK-Grade 5 will be considered for our Lower Campus on the UWS. More information about the campus, administration, and faculty will be announced through our interest list and blog!

Though BASIS Independent Manhattan campuses will open for 5 day-a-week, in-person instruction from the first day of school, we anticipate that much of the application process will be conducted virtually to ensure the safety of our students, faculty, and prospective families. Should this change, we will update families on our interest list.
