Obtaining an Official Transcript
Former students and graduates can request an official transcript by writing to:
Liberty High School Academy for Newcomers
250 West 18th Street
New York, NY 10011
Your written request should include your last name, first name, date of birth, and year of graduation or discharge. Please include a telephone number in case there are any questions. Please include a self-addressed envelope with postage so it can be forwarded by mail. You can also make the request by filling out this form:
Diplomas are issued only once. Therefore, we can only provide you with a graduation verification letter stating that you graduated from Liberty High School's program.
You can also make these requests in person. However, you will need to allow 24-48 hours for processing.
When you come to register at Liberty High School Academy for Newcomers, you will meet one of our Guidance Counselors. During the meeting, the counselor will ask you several questions about yourself to determine if Liberty is the right fit for you. They also determine your academic program based on your English language proficiency. It is important that you bring your academic transcripts from your country if you have them. If you are accepted, you will need to provide those records so you counselor can grant you credit. If you speak no English, we will find a translator for you to communicate your needs and hopes at registration. If Liberty is not the right fit for you, the counselor will suggest other educational opportunities either at another transfer school or adult education program around New York City.
