Harlem Hebrew Language Academy Charter School is a dual-language public school of academic excellence that can open up new worlds, and new opportunities, for your children. Located in New York City’s Community School District 3, Harlem Hebrew is a free public charter school open to students of all backgrounds. Our open admissions policy is subject to a random lottery if the number of applicants exceeds the number of openings annually. Preference is given to siblings of other students and residents of Community School District 3. A charter school shall not discriminate against or limit the admission of any student on any unlawful basis, including on the basis of ethnicity, national origin, gender, disability, intellectual ability, measures of achievement or aptitude, athletic ability, race, creed, gender, national origin, religion or ancestry. A school may not require any action by a student or family (such as an admissions test, interview, essay, attendance at an information session, etc.) in order for an applicant to either receive or submit an application for admission to that school.

Once you’ve filled out the simple online application, you’re entered into our lottery and don’t need to do anything else.  Please note: the lottery will take place on 4.7.21. The deadline for submitting an application is 4.1.21. All applications received after 4.1.21 will be added to the waitlist. If you’d like a school tour, please email us at Enroll@hebrewpublic.org
