The past few weeks have been nothing short of thrilling for us here at BASIS Independent Manhattan. Not only did we kick off our first year as a school community on the Upper West Side, but admissions season has now officially arrived for the upcoming 2018–19 school year!

We do admissions a bit differently here at BASIS Independent Manhattan. We offer two admissions cycles for you to choose from: the Early Admissions Cycle, and the Regular Admissions Cycle. 1707_114_BINS_SOCIAL MEDIA-EMAIL GRAPHIC_2017-18_1200x628V5.jpg

As we embark on the 2018–19 admissions season, we wanted to take this opportunity to specifically highlight the advantages of our Early Admissions Cycle.

Here is why you should consider applying to BASIS Independent Manhattan for the Early Admissions Cycle:

1)       Admissions Availability

There are many benefits to being a new community here in Manhattan—smaller classrooms to start, the “we’re in it together” mentality, and the ability to make a lasting impact on a new program. Our reputation precedes us: in the second year of our Brooklyn campus, we more than doubled enrollment. Last year, at our Brooklyn campus, our Regular Admissions cycle was the largest by volume we’ve ever had, and we expect similar results at Manhattan for the upcoming 2018–19 school year. Your chances will be that much better in the Early Admissions Cycle to secure your future at BASIS Independent Manhattan!


2)       Referral Perks

Your positive word of mouth means a lot to us! Our Referral Program is our way of saying “thank you” to families who spread our acclaimed reputation with others who then enroll in our Brooklyn or Manhattan campuses.


3)       No More Admissions Headaches

To say that applying to schools is stressful for you and for your child would be an understatement. So, if you have the chance to get it over and done with, why wait? You can trust that our dedicated admissions team will be with you every step of the way. We will even have select early opportunities to get to know some of your child’s future classmates and teachers.


4)       Early Enrollment Discount

Enrollees in our Early Admissions Cycle show trust and confidence in our school’s philosophy and leaders. To honor families whose first choice is BASIS Independent Manhattan, we will waive the $2,000 new student fee.


5)       Easier Transition for Your Child

If your child has any pre-school nerves or concerns, choosing early admissions will offer that much more time for him or her to get used to the idea of a new school and to feel 100% prepared to make the transition. We offer tons of support for our students regardless of when you enroll, but doing so early will give you the chance to attend more events to get your feet wet, and even help your child meet some future friends!

The deadline to submit an application for Early Admissions is on Friday, November 28, 2017. The entire application process must be completed by Tuesday, November 28, 2017 in order to receive a decision by Monday, December 4, 2017.
