Welcome to Hunter College High School (HCHS)

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 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 prepare them to be life-long learners and leaders. We assist in the development of creative, intellectually-curious, and original thinkers who are passionate about learning. 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 the 2020-2021 HCHS admission process for 7th grade. HCHS does not accept inquiries or applications for any other grade. (Students are not admitted into grades 8, 9, 10, 11, or 12. There are NO exceptions to grade entry.)

We welcome your interest in Hunter College High School. It is our hope that you find this information helpful.

  • Visiting HCHS

    Due to the ongoing health crisis, HCHS cannot yet confirm if it will host its annual, in-person High School Hunter Day event in spring 2022.

Any informational program will introduce parents and students to all aspects of academic and student life at the school. Information about any informational program would be sent at a later date.
