AdmissionSquad gets students into NYC's Top Public High Schools

Getting into one of NYC's top public high schools involves a whirlwind of entrance exams, interviews, fairs and open houses. AdmissionSquad prepares middle schoolers (and their parents) for the process through test prep, application counseling, academic enrichment and high-quality mentorship. We provide direct support to families and partner with schools/community-based organizations to help diversify NYC’s top 10% of high schools.

 

AdmissionSquad is an education company that offers test prep, academic enrichment, mentorship and application consulting to middle schoolers who have a goal to attend one of the Specialized High Schools in NYC or a competitive screened program.

We recruit students from as early as 5th grade. However, most of our students are current 6th and 7th graders with a goal to get an early start on the preparation process. Participating students will receive one to three years of intensive academic training and mentorship for the New York City Specialized High School Test, and other high school admissions requirements (ie. interview prep, how to secure recommendations, writing support, etc.)

Our goal is to ensure that all New Yorkers, regardless of race or economic-status, have an opportunity to attend New York City’s top public high schools. 

AdmissionSquad is not affiliated with the New York City Department of Education DREAM-SHSI program. We encourage all students interested in the specialized high school admissions process to their check eligibility for any and all programs that support underrepresented students.

Get your child into one of NYC's top public high schools

How many of NYC's top public high schools could you name? Do you know what makes a high school top-notch? AdmissionSquad believes top high schools have a knack for preparing students for college. Every year, we pore over NYC public high school data to determine who the best high schools are, checking each school's college readiness index, college enrollment rate and average SAT scores. 

TEST PREP + INTERVIEW PREP   Our Early Start Program provides 6th and 7th grade students with comprehensive and rigorous preparation for Common Core ELA and Math  state tests  and early exposure to the SHSAT. Our Huda Prep Program prepares 7th and rising 8th graders for top high school  admissions tests  (like the  new  Specialized High School Admission Test (SHSAT), entrance exam for Bard High School Early College, and more) and  admissions interviews  (like those of Bedford Academy, Bard High School Early College, and more).
