How to Apply
A step-by-step guide to applying to HEAF:
1. Are you eligible?
2. Fill out an application
If your child meets the admissions criteria, there are three ways to fill out an application:
- Apply online
Download an application, fill it out, and return it by mail to:
Seventh Avenue, 10th Floor New York, NY 10027
- Request an application in the mail. You can request your application by email, or you can call us at 212-663-9732 to request an application.
3. Submit report card and test scores
When you submit your application, you must also send in your child’s most recent report card and your child’s Math and ELA test scores. If your child meets HEAF’s academic requirements, we will contact you to schedule an interview.
If you do not have your child’s most recent test scores and report card, you should contact your child’s school to get them before applying to HEAF.
If your child did not take the Math and ELA exams, or if you have questions about whether your child is eligible, please send us an email or call us at 212-663-9732.
4. Come for your interview
Students applying to HEAF and their parents are interviewed before being admitted to the program. Students should come to their interviews prepared to talk about their academic goals and to answer a few essay questions.
All offers of admission are made at the discretion of the HEAF staff based on a number of academic, individual, and program criteria.
