High School Information

General Timeline Update:

 

  • By the end of April: Results from the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT) will be released by the end of April 2021. Like in previous years, students who took the SHSAT can get up to one offer from among the eight testing Specialized High Schools. Getting an offer to one of the eight testing Specialized High Schools is not a guarantee.

  • Later in the spring: results from the high school application and from LaGuardia High School auditions will be released later in the spring, after results from the SHSAT are released.

    • Students can get up to one offer from among the programs listed on their high school application, and students who auditioned for LaGuardia High School can get up to one offer to each program they auditioned for. Getting an offer to one of the programs at LaGuardia High School is not a guarantee, and getting an offer to one of the choices on your high school application is also not a guarantee.

    • Like in previous years, students who do not get an offer to one of the choices on their high school application and also do not receive an offer to a Specialized High School will receive an offer to a program that they did not apply to.

  • Waitlists will open after results from the high school application are released in late spring. Every high school program will have a waitlist, except the nine Specialized High Schools. Like last year, the nine Specialized High Schools will not have waitlists.
