Apply to Oliver


We identify talented and motivated students who will make the most of the Oliver opportunity. Through our outreach and recruitment efforts, which take place virtually year-round, we invite nominations for high-achieving Black and Latino seventh graders from throughout the five boroughs of New York City. Once nominated, families must attend an Admissions Information Meeting, submit an application, and participate in interviews if invited.

Nominations for the 2018-2019 admissions cycle are now closed. Please check back in October 2019 for our next call for nominations.
