Specialized High School Test

The City offers entrance examinations for Specialized High Schools each October. NYC public school students must talk to their guidance counselor to register to take the Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT).

The registration period for the 2018-2019 school year is from Thursday, September 7 to Thursday, October 12.

Students who are in the 10th, 11th, and 12th grades are not eligible to take the entrance exam for the City's Specialized High Schools.
