This fall and winter, we’ll be hosting a two-part series of virtual events about high school and Specialized High Schools admissions in New York City. All current eighth and first-time ninth grade students and families are invited to join us for both events.

  • Part 1, November Virtual Information Sessions: Getting Started with MySchools and Registering for the SHSAT. The application isn’t open yet, but there’s so much you can do now! At each event, we’ll walk through how to create your MySchools account, use MySchools to explore high school options, and register for the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT). After the presentation, we will respond to your questions about these topics. Dates, times, and language access information for these events are listed below.
  • Part 2, Winter Virtual Information Sessions: Applying to High School. At each of these events, we’ll cover when and how to apply, how offers are made, how to build a balanced application, and how to participate in the audition process for arts programs, including LaGuardia High School. Dates, times, and language access information for these sessions will be announced later this year.
