2019 SHSAT Summer Boot Camp
This is a summer program designed for rising 8th graders and advanced 6th and 7th graders seeking admission into one of NYC's top high schools that require an exam for admission. These schools include Bard High School Early College and the eight Specialized High Schools: Stuyvesant, Bronx Science, Brooklyn Tech, Brooklyn Latin, High School of Math, Science and Engineering at City College (HSMSE), American Studies at Lehman, Staten Island Tech, and Queens Science at York College.
This is an SHSAT intensive program, that requires commitment from parents and students over the summer. Students will be expected to complete all assigned work in order to keep up with the pacing of the program. There is rolling admission until June 15th 2019. Program will commence with a parent workshop to help parents understand the available options for top high schools and will provide another parent workshop for parents to connect and lean on one another as they navigate the top high school admissions process.
The first step to being considered for the 2019 SHSAT Summer Boot Camp is the submission of an application. Criteria for admission is solely based on applicant's performance on our diagnostic test. There is no minimum cutoff score until June 15, 2019. We recommend that students join our early start program to get a head start on SHSAT prep. This will give your child an advantage on the diagnostic. We strongly advise parents to start preparing earlier to avoid having the child learn a massive body of content in only a few short months. Student's will be able to select their diagnostic test appointment based on available dates and times provided by the program director.
