High School Admissions Closed
The admissions process for the 2023-2024 school year has closed. At this time, current 8th and 9th graders can be placed on our waitlist only. Please note that NYCDOE high schools (which includes us) have very limited control, if any, over who gets placed with us.
Middle School Admissions Reopens in July
If your son is currently in the 5th, 6th, or 7th grades, and you wish for your son to attend in his 6th, 7th, or 8th grade year starting in September, we will reopen middle school admissions in mid-July. We ask that you wait until mid-July to request middle school admissions as we are unable to process anything until that time.
As Eagle Academy is a NYC Department of Education school, all admissions is conducted through the New York City Department of Education admissions system via MySchools.
The deadline is usually in late fall/early winter to apply via MySchools. Families will need to use either of our application codes depending on the grade level they are applying to:
X231L: used for students going into grade 6
X99X: used for students going into grades 9 and 10
We are not able to admit high school students on our own.

Frequently Asked Questions
I missed the application deadline. Can my son still be admitted?
If your son is going into the middle school, we can enroll him after July 15th. If your son is going into high school grades 9 or 10, you can be added to our wait list. If your son is going into high school grades 11 or 12, we request you make an appointment with us, and you will ultimately have to visit the Family Welcome Center at Fordham Plaza to request the transfer.
How will my son receive transportation?
Scholars at Eagle Academy receive MetroCards, based on eligibility pursuant to the regulations of the Office of Pupil Transportation (OPT). Eagle Academy does not provide yellow busing for any scholar except for special education students who have transportation on their IEPs. View the OPT website for additional information.
What are the deadlines?
Admissions dates for the 2024-2025 school year application have not yet been determined by the NYCDOE. Families must attend an open house during the fall, which will be conducted tentatively in person.
How will I be notified if he was placed at Eagle?
Notices of placement at the Eagle Academy for Young Men are made through your son's guidance counselor at his current school. If you are wondering if your son was placed us, please check with your son's guidance counselor. Once a student is placed with us by the NYC Department of Education, he is guaranteed to attend here in the fall unless you decide to appeal the decision and put him elsewhere. We mail letters home in late May/early June once our admissions lists are finalized by the NYCDOE.
