BASIS Independent Manhattan plans to allow a limited number of visits from prospective families during this upcoming Admissions Cycle. Due to the current ongoing pandemic, we will be hosting a combination of virtual and in-person options during the admissions process:

PreK-Grade 2: Playdates, Assessments and Family Meetings will all be online.

Grades 3-10: In-person assessments will be offered directly following our Open Houses. All other assessment dates will be online. Family Meetings will all be online.

We are now accepting applications for PreK to Grade 10 for the 2022-23 school year and continuing to accept applications in select grades for 2021-2022 in our Rolling Admissions Cycle. Once you have submitted your application for the upcoming school year, you will receive an email from our Admissions Team outlining the next steps of the process.

All students will have the opportunity to have an online Play Date/Assessment as well as complete their Family Meeting during the coming months. The corresponding required materials, including transcripts and teacher recommendations, can all be submitted electronically.

Please don’t hesitate to contact our admissions team with any questions. Thank you for your interest!
