Specialized High Schools Admissions Test SHSAT

The Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT) is an examination administered to eighth and ninth grade students residing in New York City and used to determine admission to all but one of the city's Specialized High Schools. The test is given in the autumn for admission the following school year. After the results of the test in October and November 2008, 6,106 students from New York City were accepted, out of 29,000 students, who applied. Students have until the end of February to make their decisions. The SHSAT is used for admission to the following schools:

Bronx High School of Science
Brooklyn Technical High School
Brooklyn Latin School
High School for Math, Science and Engineering at City College
High School of American Studies at Lehman College
Queens High School for the Sciences at York College
Staten Island Technical High School
Stuyvesant High School
