Applicant Visit Days

Applicant Visit Days

Applicant visit days are offered to applicants on select days beginning in November, leading up to the February 1 priority application deadline.  After February 1, visit days are offered as the schedule allows.  Visit days are customized. If your child has a particular interest or favorite class, we’ll try our best to include those in the visit day. The visit day offers applicants a chance to experience life at NYA, as well as fulfills the interview requirement.
