Welcome Class of 2020

Dear Incoming Students and Families,

Congratulations, to all incoming students and welcome to the Aviation family! We are thrilled to be partnering with you as you participate in an exciting educational journey! On behalf of the entire Aviation community, I pledge that we will do everything possible to ensure that you develop your educational curiosity and love of all things aviation. Aviation is a place where you can achieve your true potential and realize your dreams. Take advantage of this opportunity. Study hard, make new friends, and try new clubs and activities. Get to know your teachers. These experiences, and many others you will have during your time here will prepare you to make your mark on the world. I look forward to getting to know you in the coming years as our students, and for decades to come as our alumni.

Vital to excellence, creativity, and innovation at Aviation is our commitment to diversity and inclusiveness. Cultivating our rich diversity is a hallmark of our school. We encourage one another to celebrate our differences and to foster a community free of intolerance and discrimination. Together we work to promote a climate that is respectful, civil, supportive, and safe. These core values allow us to provide a living and learning environment where we can all pursue our dreams and reach our highest potential.  Studies show that students who believe they can do well often are correct. Students who believe their abilities can grow with hard work, effort, perseverance, and trial-and-error are more likely to overcome obstacles and succeed.

COVID-19 Challenges:

Normally, we would have you all come in for an orientation meeting on Thursday, June 4, 2020.  Unfortunately, we will not be able to do so.  We are working on a video of the event and a survey asking you a few questions about your current middle school experience.  We want to give you some information now, and also give you the opportunity to ask any questions that we can incorporate into our presentation.  We will continue to follow the guidelines and protocols that are issued by the Department of Education and the City of New York.  We urge everybody to stay safe and we hope to see you all in the fall.

Key Notes for Incoming Students: 

  1. We do not know if the building will be open in the fall.

  2. All students take courses in Aircraft Maintenance.

    1. Regardless of the admissions code that your child was accepted through, all students are enrolled in our Aircraft Maintenance courses.

    3. We offer no other career-focused electives or programs.

  3. All students are placed in academic courses that are rigorous and challenging.

    1. Starting sophomore year, honors and college-level classes are available and encouraged.

  4. We provide a wide array of services for students with disabilities.

  5. We honor accelerated eighth-grade classes.

    1. Exact details regarding how these classes will be handled are not available as we are still waiting for guidance and clarification from the Department of Education.

  6. More specific information will be provided in the video that will be available on our website soon.  To see a welcome message from our principal, Mr. Steven R. Jackson, and to ask a question, please click here!

FAQs

How do I apply to Aviation High School?

Your current middle school would help you submit the NYC High School Application to the Department of Education via https://www.myschools.nyc

If you require extra help or are attending middle school outside of the NYC Department of Education, please call the Family Welcome Center at 718-935-3500.

What if I am applying for the 10th grade, 11th or 12th grade?

As of this school year (2016-2017), transfer students are no longer  accepted due to changes applied by the Federal Aviation Administration to our programs.

Do I have to list Aviation High School as #1 on the application form?

You do not have to, but be advised that the Department of Education will also take into consideration your preference when deciding placement of students.

Do I need to take a test to get into your school?

There is no admission test for Aviation High School.

I am interested in becoming a pilot, is Aviation High School a right fit for me?

Here at Aviation High School, students study aircraft maintenance, in addition to being prepared for college. This means that all of our students learn how planes fly and learn how to fix planes.

While we do not offer a flight program, we are a great step into a pilot program after graduation.

I did not attend public school in the 7th grade. What standardized exams do I submit?

Students are not penalized for not taking standardized exams. Your application will be considered without standardized exams.

What scores do I need on the standardized exams (ELA/Reading and Mathematics) to be eligible for Aviation High School?

If you are applying for Q60A – Aerospace Engineering Technology, you will need a 3 or 4 on standardized exams.

If you are applying for Q60Q – Aircraft Maintenance, you will need a 2 to 4 on standardized exams.

How is my student's average calculated for admissions into your school?

The office of enrollment only sends us limited information. Regarding class grades, we only receive grades for math, English, Social Studies and science.

I was absent from school for an extended period of time because of illness or family issues. Will you still consider my application?

Yes. Your middle school counselor has the option of indicating that you were absent because of “Extenuating Circumstances.” If your counselor checks off that box, we do not penalize you for your absences.

When is the deadline to apply?

Deadlines are set by your current school. Please check with your middle school guidance counselor. The citywide deadline is usually around December 1.

 Will Aviation High School offer any seats in Round 2?

No. Round 2 is only for schools that did not fill all of their seats in Round 1.  Last year, we received 5,000 applications for our 500 freshmen seats.
