Get ready to apply to high school this fall! All eighth grade and first-time ninth grade students and their families can prepare by taking these three steps:
- Read the NYC High School Directory: Learn about applying to high school and find programs that interest you in each borough. Get yours from your middle school or at High School Admissions events.
- Review the Specialized High Schools Student Handbook: Learn about the Specialized High Schools, the admissions process for these schools, and prepare for the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT) and/or LaGuardia High School auditions.
- Go to High School Events: Get to know high schools as you build your list of programs for your application. Check back soon on High School Admissions for the dates and locations of High School Family Workshops this July!
Printed directories and handbooks for families are now being sent to public middle schools and Family Welcome Centers; English and translated directories and handbooks will be available at all locations by the end of June.
