The Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT) is for students in grades 8 or 9 who wish to apply to New York City's
specialized high school. Along with the test, students will also submit an application listing their preferred choice of schools.
A student's score on this test will determine their admission into a particular specialized high school.
Because the SHSAT is unlike any tests given in school, even the best students must struggle to keep pace with their
peers when it comes to achieving competitive scores that reflect their true potential. But taking more tests and reviewing
only what is taught in school are not enough to secure an advantage. It requires a complete rethinking of how to prep. Our framework
brings together the most up-to-date materials, the most experienced instructors, and an engaging support staff to create the best
environment to help all students, of every background, succeed. Here they’ll master the skills and strategies necessary to achieve
their highest score. Our classes are taught by subject experts who have scored at or above the 95th percentile in the section of their
expertise, and are themselves not only experts in applying the most effective test-taking strategies but also in passing those skills
on to their students.
