In order to be considered for admissions at one of the New York City Specialized High Schools (not including LaGuardia), students must register for the SHSAT through their counselor. Students should indicate interest in any of the schools by entering the appropriate information on their ticket.
Students must then obtain an admission ticket from their guidance counselor. The ticket will indicate the specific date and time of the SHSAT. On test day, students will be asked to rank the Specialized High School in order of preference.
For more information on registering for the SHSAT including registration dates, go to the official SHSAT Information of NYC Department of Education https://www.schools.nyc.gov/learning/testing/specialized-high-school-admissions-test
