BASIS Independent Manhattan is currently closed to visitors, which follows suit with the public school closure announcement, to protect public health in our city. Although our campus is closed during this time, we are now accepting applications for PreK to Grade 10 for the 2021-22 school year and continuing to accept applications in select grades for 2020-2021 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/Entrance Exam as well as complete their Family Meeting virtually during our current school closure. 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!
