Course Description

The Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT) is the only criterion for admission to 8 of the 9 New York City Specialized High Schools. Our SHSAT program starts in 7th grade and is divided into two levels. It is divided into Upper Level and Lower Level, which consists of Reading, Writing, Math 3 books, homework, and C2A curriculum, and Upper Level prepares for the actual test with practice questions based on Real test and 3-hour tests.


What To Expect

Level Testing

Our Level Test evaluates students' knowledge in the SHSAT's subject matter. With Easy, Medium, and Hard levels, it precisely assesses proficiency and identifies areas for improvement. We use this level test to acquire immediate feedback about where your student currently is compared to where they’d like to be academically. This feedback helps enhance performance and guide future success.


Our SHSAT Summer Camp typically starts around June 28th and runs through August 23rd. Camp days start at 8:30 AM and run through 5:00 PM. Classes are usually Monday through Thursday, and the camp runs for approximately 8 weeks.
