Before beginning the application process, schools must meet the following criteria. The applying school must:
- be a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization
- hold a certificate of Absolute Charter from the State of New York (resources available upon request)

If the school meets these criteria:
- The Head of School must email a completed application form with the supporting documents to Maria Flores Seibert (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Request an application form and checklist of required documents.
- The NYSAIS Executive Director will contact the applying Head of School concerning the category of membership available to the school, and the procedure for application.
- The Executive Director and members of the NYSAIS Board of Trustees will schedule a visit to the school.
- The report of the school visit is added to the written application for the consideration of the NYSAIS Board of Trustees Membership Committee at its next meeting.
- School membership requires a vote of the Board of Trustees, and membership acceptances will be sent following the meeting at which the vote is taken.
