SHSAT Test Prep

Among those (few) things that all New Yorkers can agree on, the excellence of the city’s Specialized High Schools surely occupies a special place of distinction. Publicly funded and administered, these nine high schools provide a world-class education that is the envy of many an independent school.

A Personalized Approach to SHSAT prep

To qualify for admission to a Specialized High School, a student needs an outstanding score on the SHSAT (Specialized High School Admissions Test). In an ever-growing city that puts an incredible premium on quality education, admission to these schools has never been more competitive. More than 26,000 students take the SHSAT each year to qualify for fewer than 6,000 spots.

shsat test prep nycThe SHSAT is offered only once per year, in October or November, and students are eligible to take the test in eighth and ninth grade. In effect, this means that students have only two chances, once in eighth and once in ninth grade, to qualify for a Specialized High School. With only a short window of opportunity, a personalized SHSAT test prep program with CATES can make all the difference in taking you where you want to go.

With over 120 years of combined professional experience in tutoring at all levels, we know the ins and outs of SHSAT test prep like nobody else. Our hallmark at CATES is our personalized approach to test prep. We match students with our expert private tutors based on a student’s specific, individual needs, to guarantee a successful and productive relationship.
