In an effort to make the opportunity to attend Hunter College Elementary School (HCES) available to all families, preference is not granted to siblings of current students or Hunter College Campus Schools (HCCS) alumni. Every applicant is evaluated on their individual merits. The admissions decision for one sibling has no bearing on the admissions decision for another.
Information regarding visiting Hunter College Elementary School (HCES) and Open Houses will be determined at a later date. HCES will offer alternative opportunities including virtual visits to learn more about our school. Please continue to check our website for updates.
Traditionally, parents/guardians of children who are offered admission or placement on the wait list have been invited for a visit at HCES. At that time, parents/guardians of admitted children are able to visit classrooms, and meet the principal, faculty, and other staff prior to submitting enrollment paperwork for their child.
Unfortunately, we cannot accommodate all families interested in visiting HCES in person as they begin their admissions application process.
NOTE: Far more children seek admission to the Hunter College Elementary School than can be accommodated. Our process is solely for selecting children for admission to our small school.
