Admissions Process

Only when you walk through our brightly colored hallways filled with student work, will you be able to get the true sense of our institution. We encourage you to schedule a visit so that we may answer any questions you have in person as you meet with our administrators and chat with our HAFTR students.
If you are interested in visiting our campus, please contact Karen Wild at 516.569.3370 ext.109 or
At HAFTR, we work closely with each new family to ensure that the admission process is seamless. For your convenience, below you will find an admissions checklist to assist with the process.
□ Parent(s) meet with Karen Wild, Director of Admissions.
□ Parent(s) submit completed application.
□ Pay application fees here.
□ Parent(s) and student(s) interview with respective administrators.
□ Student(s) meet with School Psychologist (Grades K-8).
□ Parent(s) receive admission decision.
Each parent must register with our website and create a Login ID and Password (your login credentials). Without these, you will not be able to sign your contract.

Once both parents have set up their login credentials and received a confirmation email, they will each be able to log on to the registration portal. The portal will take you through several sections that need to be completed. If you have not completed each section, you will not be able to access your Payment Arrangement page and sign your contract.

Either parent is able to complete each section. However, to complete Payment Arrangement and sign the contract, both parents will need to be together to electronically sign the document and enter their passwords. Please note that your name needs to be signed exactly as shown on the portal, and cannot include an extra spaces, in order to be accepted as a signature.

Common Issues:

1. I can't access the Payment Arrangement page.

In order to access the Payment Arrangement page, you need to review each preceding page and submit it. To verify that you have submitted each page, make sure that there is a check mark near each page on the sidebar menu:
Online registration menu vs. online registration menu 2
Menu 2 vs parental consent

2. I'm unable to sign - I'm receiving a Signature Mismatch error.

The system will accept your electronic signature if you enter your name exactly as shown below the signature line. An (invisible) extra space after your name will throw it off. The password requested is the one the signer uses to log on to the portal.
