Hunter College High School (HCHS) is a part of the Hunter College Campus Schools, the laboratory schools of the City University of New York administered by Hunter College. Our school, though a high school, serves students in grades 7-12. The only entry year for HCHS is 7th grade.
We serve students who demonstrate advanced cognitive ability, and we assist in the development of creative, intellectually curious, and original thinkers who are passionate about learning. We prepare our students to be life-long learners and leaders. Our schools use the principles of gifted education, including depth, complexity, challenge, enrichment, and acceleration of the curriculum, to meet the needs of intellectually advanced students.
On these pages you will find general information for admission to the 7th grade at HCHS. We do not accept inquiries or applications for any other grades than 7th grade. We do not accept students for 8th or 9th grade or transfer students for any grade.
We welcome your interest in Hunter College High School and hope that you will find the information presented here helpful.
