At each event, we’ll cover how to build a balanced high school application, how offers are made, how applicants will be evaluated for screened programs, and how to participate in the audition process for arts programs, including for LaGuardia High School. After the presentation, we will respond to your questions.

 

The content of each event is the same, but different interpretation services will be provided at different events, as follows:

Dear 8TH Grade Families,

The High School Application is now open, and the deadline to apply is December 1, 2022. All current eighth grade students in NYC are welcome and encouraged to apply. Here’s how:

1. Log in to your MySchools.nyc account. You will use MySchools to explore High Schools, apply, and get your high school offer in the Spring 2023. Need help creating an account? Watch this tutorial.

2. Learn about High Schools and programs.

  • Search MySchools for programs based on interests, location, and more. Each program’s page includes how it makes offers and if you need to complete any additional steps, such as an audition. On our website, learn how to audition and how students will get offers to screened programs.

  • Visit schools of interest. Very soon, MySchools’ events calendar will be updated to include open house information for high schools. 

  • Add 12 program choices to your child’s application in MySchools. List these choices in your true order of preference, with your top choice as #1. 

**Please note that the nine Specialized High Schools use separate admissions processes; these schools will not show up as options on your high school application:

  • LaGuardia High School. Submit a separate LaGuardia application (in MySchools) and audition by December 1 to apply for any of the school’s six arts programs––learn how to audition

 

  • Testing Specialized High Schools. Register by November 4 (online, through your school counselor, or through a Family Welcome Center) to take the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT), which determines admissions to the eight testing Specialized High Schools. Registered students will take the SHSAT on a scheduled date in November or December.

3. Apply by December 1! You can submit your high school application and/or LaGuardia application one of the following ways: 

Need support with your MySchools account, your child’s unique account creation code, or your Application?

Have other admissions questions? We’re here to help! Talk to your child’s school counselor or contact a Family Welcome Center
