Middle School and High School Admissions

  • The middle school application will open the week of January 11.
  • The high school application will open the week of January 18.
  • To ensure health and safety of our staff and students, the SHSAT exam will be administered in students’ own middle schools to reduce travel and different cohorts of students. Other students will take the SHSAT at DOE locations. These locations, along with all test dates, will be shared in the coming weeks. Registration for the test opens on Monday, December 21, 2020 and ends on January 15, 2021. Test administration will begin in late January
