We are accepting grade 5 applications for the 2019-20 school year.


The 2019–20 school-year application for grade 5 is open. If you would like to enter more than one child, please complete an application for each child.


For assistance with completing your online application, please call Orquidia Paniagua at 212-304-0103 to schedule an appointment to fill out the application at Inwood Academy.


Students are given a preference in the lottery if they are an English Language Learner living in the Community School District in which our school is located—District 6. Applying siblings of students enrolled in Inwood Academy are also given preference for a seat. We fill all open seats in every grade although most open seats are in the fifth and ninth grades.
