Welcome to High School Admissions
COVID-19 has had a profound impact across every aspect of our school system, including the admissions process. As a result, we’re updating our pre-pandemic admissions timeline to ensure ample time for families to explore schools and apply once the application launches. Please note:
- The high school application is not yet open, and no longer closes on December 4, 2020. You will have additional time to apply.
- Registration for Specialized High Schools admissions is not yet open, and no longer closes on October 21, 2020. You will have additional time to register.
- Dates and locations for the high school fairs, the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT), and LaGuardia High School auditions—as listed in the 2021 NYC High School and Specialized High Schools Admissions Guide—will also change.
We appreciate your patience and will update this page with more detailed information and timelines as soon as we can.
- Sign up for our high school admissions email list and we’ll notify you when the high school application and Specialized High Schools registration opens! You will also get updates, key date reminders, and tips throughout the admissions process.
