Application for Admission
Cascades High School is a coeducational secondary school located on the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Our mission is to create committed, responsible, visionary leaders for the 21st century. We are preparing our students through excellent instruction, which is crucial to raising standards and preparing students for their post-secondary educational plans. Cascades High school is a place where all are encouraged to discover their true identities to become fully self-expressed and to achieve their highest dreams.

We are a semester-based school with rolling admissions, but we strongly encourage students to apply prior to the start of each term.
Cascades High School is seeking transfer applicants who are a minimum age of 16 years old, have earned at least 10 credits, and have passed one or more Regents exams. However, we consider all applicants on a case-by case basis.
