10/13/20 Announcement - 

The Office of HS enrollment will deliver printed copies of the 2021 NYC High School and Specialized High Schools Admissions Guide to schools. However, all families are encouraged to access the admissions guide online at schools.nyc.gov/High.

  • These deliveries to the school will BEGIN in mid-October and take place over the course of 3-4 weeks. In previous years, these deliveries took place in May and June.

  • The admissions guide is available in English, and translated guides are also available for those whose home language is one of the nine DOE languages.


COVID-19 has had a profound impact across every aspect of our school system, including the admissions process. As a result, the pre-pandemic HS admissions timeline will be adjusted this year to ensure ample time for families to explore schools and apply once the application launches. Please note:

  • The HS application is not yet open, and no longer closes on December 4, 2020. Families will have additional time to apply. New deadline date TBA.

  • Registration for the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT) and LaGuardia HS auditions is not yet open, and no longer closes on October 21, 2020. You will have additional time to register. New deadline date TBA.

  • Dates and locations for the high school fairs, the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT), and LaGuardia HS auditions—as listed in the 2021 NYC High School and Specialized High Schools Admissions Guide—will also change.

9/25/20 Announcement - As the focus right now is first and foremost on safety, updates around HS admissions is not yet available. More information will come soon. As it becomes available, we will update students and families right away.
