About the Parents League of New York
Founded in 1913 as a coalition of parents and independent and private schools, Parents League of New York supports families and children by providing a broad range of educational and parenting resources.
As the public face of private education in New York—and the only nonprofit of its kind—we are the preeminent provider of advisory services for school admissions. Each year we help thousands of families as they apply to hundreds of schools across the country. Through our unequaled experience and affiliations, we have been developing and offering a wide array of workshops, forums and publications for over 100 years.
UPDATED FOR 2020! Getting Into New York City High-School can be an 18 month long process that regularly drives over 70,000 8th graders and their parents nearly over the edge. 2020 is promising to be the toughest year yet, with multiple changes on the horizon, including a proposal to change admissions to SHSAT schools, get rid of Screened schools, and no more Round 2!
