High School Placement

Our mission is to provide students with a rigorous curriculum and valuable character development that will prepare them for success well beyond their time at MCHR. Given the competitive landscape of New York City high school admissions, we offer high school placement assistance to all students.

Goals

Our main goal to match every MCHR student with a high school that best supports his or her academic ability, talents, aspirations, and skills. Our high school placement team accompanies each MCHR student beginning in sixth grade and continues until each student is placed in their selected high school.

Sixth graders work with our high school placement team to set academic goals, begin studying for entrance exams, and find outside enrichment opportunities that will prepare them for high school. As students progress to seventh grade, they begin working more closely with our team to research potential schools, attend information sessions, and further develop skills needed for entrance exams and the admissions process.

In their last year at MCHR, students meet with the admissions advisor to narrow down a list of schools, make school visits, and complete their applications, interviews, and/or auditions. Our high school placement team works hard to ensure that students feel confident with their applications, that they apply to appropriate schools, and that they can secure the financial aid they need to make their education affordable.

We understand that the high school application process is a challenging one, and we are here to offer students and their families support at every step of the way.

Events

Throughout the year, our high school placement team offers informative events, high school fairs, and workshops to students and their families. Please email Ms. Stephanie Read, our High School Placement Coordinator, at stephanie.read@partnershipnyc.org for a schedule of events.
