FAQs

How do I apply to Aviation High School?

Your current middle school would help you submit the NYC High School Application to the Department of Education.  If you require extra help or are attending middle school outside of the NYC Department of Education, please call the Family Welcome Center at 718-935-3500.

What if I am applying for the 10th grade, 11th or 12th grade?

As of this school year (2016-2017), transfer students will no longer be accepted due to changes applied by the Federal Aviation Administration.

Do I have to list Aviation High School as #1 on the application form?

You do not have to but be advised that the Department of Education will also take into consideration your preference when deciding placement of students.

Do I need to take a test to get into your school?

There is no admission test for Aviation High School.

I am interested in becoming a pilot, is Aviation High School a right fit for me?

Here at Aviation High School, students study aircraft maintenance, in addition to being prepared for college. This means that all of our students learn how planes fly and learn how to fix planes. While we do not offer a flight program, we are a great step into a pilot program after graduation.

I did not attend public school in the 7th grade. What standardized exams do I submit?

Students are not penalized for not taking standardized exams. Your application will be considered without standardized exams.

What scores do I need on the standardized exams (ELA/Reading and Mathematics) to be eligible for Aviation High School?

If you are applying for Q60A – Aerospace Engineering Technology, you will need a 3 or 4 on standardized exams.

If you are applying for Q60Q – Aircraft Maintenance, you will need a 2 to 4 on standardized exams.

How is my student's average calculated for admissions into your school?

The office of enrollment only sends us limited information. Regarding class grades, we only receive grades for math, English, Social Studies and science.

I was absent from school for an extended period of time because of illness or family issues. Will you still consider my application?

Yes. Your middle school counselor has the option of indicating that you were absent because of “Extenuating Circumstances.” If your counselor checks off that box, we do not penalize you for your absences.

When is the deadline to apply?

Deadlines are set by your current school. Please check with your middle school guidance counselor. The citywide deadline is usually around December 1.

 Will Aviation High School offer any seats in Round 2?

No. Round 2 is only for schools that did not fill all of their seats in Round 1.  Last year, we received 5,000 applications for our 500 freshmen seats.
