Dear families,

 

Welcome back to school! All current 8th and first-time 9th grade students who live in New York City can apply to high school and test and/or audition to apply to the Specialized High Schools during the 2021-2022 school year. In mid-October, you’ll get your child’s welcome letter with details on how to access your MySchools account and participate.

 

SHSAT UPDATE

 

Today, we have updates for students interested in applying to any/all of the eight testing Specialized High Schools. You apply to these schools by registering for and then taking the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT); offers are made based on each student’s SHSAT score, their school preferences, and seat availability. Here’s what to do, when:

 

  • Prepare. Detailed test information, sample tests, and information about testing accommodations are available on our website.
  • Register. Registration will open in mid-October 2021. Specific registration dates are coming soon!
  • Test. All registered students will take the SHSAT in December 2021. When specific test dates and other information become available, we will send an update. 

 

STAY TUNED! MORE UPDATES ARE COMING SOON, INCLUDING...

 

  • When to submit your high school application, the way to apply to most of the city’s 700+ program options.
  • When and how to register for programs at Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, NYC’s audition Specialized High School, which uses a separate admissions process.
