Applications for the 2020-21 academic year are now available.

 Browning is one of the New York City independent schools using a web-based application called Ravenna for the submission of online applications. Ravenna allows families to apply to schools and track the status of an application online efficiently. Additionally, through Ravenna, you will be able to schedule admission events and view decision notification.

How to Begin

To begin your application, go to Ravenna and create an account. Make sure to create your account using an email address that you will have access to throughout the admission season, as this will be your primary email contact with our school.
