    Registration for the SHSAT will open on December 21!

    Registration for the SHSAT will open on December 21!

    The deadline to register for the SHSAT is January 15, 2021.

    The SHSAT will be administered in person, in late January, at your middle school. It will begin to be administered on January 27 onwards.

    When you register, a new difference this year is that you will put down your ranked SHS priority choices into myschools.

    In the past this was done by the students on test day or the test answer sheet.

    More details still coming! There are also MS and HS screened school changes but wanted to focus on the SHSAT for this post for now.

    Dear Parent/Guardian,

    Beginning today, December 21, you can register your child to test and/or audition for admission to the Specialized High Schools!

    Eight Testing Specialized High Schools. Apply to any/all of these schools by registering for, then taking the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT).

    Step 1. Register by January 15, 2021 to take the SHSAT. Log in to your MySchools account and click “Get Started”. Then click the “SHSAT” tab. Here, list any/all of these schools in your true preference order, starting with your top choice as #1. After taking the SHSAT, your child will be considered for admission to the Specialized High Schools you list on this page, in the order listed. Submit your registration for the test.
    Step 2. Take the SHSAT. Testing will begin on January 27. 8th grade public school students will take the SHSAT at their current school. Other students will take the SHSAT at DOE locations. These locations, along with all test dates, will be shared in the coming weeks.


    One Audition Specialized High School. Apply to any/all of the programs at LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and the Performing Arts by registering to audition, then submitting audition materials. Please note that the SHSAT is not used for admission to LaGuardia.



    Step 1. Register to audition by the week of February 22, 2021. Log in to your MySchools account and click "Get Started.” Then click the “LaGuardia” tab. Here, indicate which programs your child wants to audition for. There are six programs at LaGuardia High School, and students can audition for just one program, all six, or anything in between. Submit your registration to audition.
    Step 2. Submit your audition by the week of March 1. All high school auditions this year—including for LaGuardia High School—will take place virtually.
    Applicants will submit audition files through a new Virtual Audition Submission Tool. This tool is not yet open; we will notify schools and families when you can access it.
    Updated requirements for audition programs are available on our High School Auditions page; these will be posted in the MySchools directory in the coming weeks.

    So SHSAT and audition registration went live yesterday. The exact SHSAT dates are still not yet being revealed by the DOE. This appears a step forward but it is still very much an open book.

    reminder of upcoming deadline

    Dear parent/guardian,

    Friday, January 15, 2021 is the deadline to register for the Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT)! Use MySchools to register for the test —talk to your school counselor if you need help logging in.

    Test tickets will be available shortly after the registration deadline. We’ll notify families and school when they’re ready to print from MySchools.

    DOE public school 8th graders will be taking the SHSAT at their own middle schools this year, while private school, charter, homeschool, and 9th graders will take the test at central DOE locations on weekends. For more information regarding test dates and locations, please visit schools.nyc.gov/SHS.

    Thanks,

    The High School Admissions Team

    Yes, and although not officially announced yet, it seems the SHSAT will be administered to all students in Grade 8 public school on Jan 27 at their school. A make up date will be Feb 10. I assume the latter will also be the date for those in Grade 9 as well as "non-public school" Grade 8 students.
