About the SHSAT
Learn how to Improve your score
The SHSAT (Specialized High School Admissions Test) is an exam 8th and 9th graders take for admission to New York City's nine highly prestigeous Specialized High Schools. The test is given in the late October for 8th graders and mid-November for 9th graders for admission the following school year.
The competition for acceptance into the city's Specialized High Schools is extremely intense and for better or worse, admission to these elite high schools is based solely on your SHSAT score, which means being properly prepared for the exam is crucial. For example, in November 2019, 23,408 students listed Stuyvesant High School as a choice on their application but only 963 offers were made. Hence, rigorous preparation for the SHSAT is essential for success.
Luckily, Dr. Donnelly, the New York's leading private SHSAT tutor, is now accepting a limited number of students for one-on-one SHSAT tutoring and test preparation either online or in-person here in Manhattan. Places are strictly limited and tend to fill up rather quickly so please reserve your spot well in advance to avoid disappointment.Click on the links below to learn more:
