The Academies @ Englewood program serves the children of Englewood and Englewood Cliffs as well as students from over 30 Bergen County districts and districts outside Bergen County.

The Interdistrict Public School Choice Program allows students who live outside Englewood and Englewood Cliffs to apply to the Academies @ Englewood. To be eligible, a student must be enrolled at the time of application in a public school of his/her district of residence and must have attended public school in the district of residence for at least one year immediately preceding enrollment in the choice district. (All acceptances are conditional on re-authorization of the Interdistrict Public School Choice Program.)

Englewood and Englewood Cliffs residents are exempt from this requirement; that is, students who live in Englewood or Englewood Cliffs who attend private or parochial school are eligible for admission to the Academies@Englewood.
