Applying to Blue School

Thank you for your interest in Blue School. We accept applications to our age 2 through grade 7 programs. Our admissions process begins in the fall prior to your desired year of attendance. Our application for 2020-2021 will be available on September 3, 2019. 

If you are interested in submitting an application for the 2019-2020 school year, please contact the admissions office directly at admissions@blueschool.org or 212.228.6341.


Blue School uses Ravenna, a web-based application, for all aspects of the admissions process. Please follow the steps below. 

1. Create a Ravenna profile. Visit Ravenna HUB and create an account to begin your application. Make sure to create your account using an email address you will have access to throughout the admission season as this will be your primary contact with our school. 

2. Sign up for a school tour or open house. Once you have created your account, visit Blue School's page on Ravenna to sign up for available school tours or open houses. School tours are a required part of the application process, but you are also welcome to attend before you have submitted an application. 

3. Submit your application and nonrefundable application fee. When you are ready, submit your application and pay the application fee through Ravenna. If the application fee presents a hardship to your family please contact the admissions office at 212.228.6341 x165 for a waiver code. Please note that the deadline for applications to all grades is December 1, 2019. 

4. Complete supplementary steps and track your application. Follow the directions on the Ravenna application page to complete supplementary steps. These steps will vary by grade and may include teacher evaluations, student visits or playgroups, and parent interviews. You will also be able to track the progress of your application and verify when it is complete. 


If at any point you should have a question about Ravenna and your application, please contact them directly at help@ravennasolutions.com. Ravenna is happy to answer your inquiry by phone, however, they require that all support inquiries are initiated through the email address you used to create your Ravenna account. It is important that they are able to validate your access to any information about your applicant's account to protect your privacy. 

While we are using Ravenna for our application process, we are always available for any conversations you would like to have. If you have any questions at all about the admissions process or programs offered, please do not hesitate to reach out to us directly at admissions@blueschool.org or 212.228.6341.
