- Read the 2017 NYC High School Directory: Research high school programs, familiarize yourself with the admissions timeline, and learn about the process with admissions activities.
- Review the 2016-2017 Specialized High Schools Student Handbook: Learn about the Specialized High Schools, understand the admissions process for these schools, and prepare for the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT) and/or LaGuardia High School auditions.
- Attend a High School Family Workshop in July: Get to know the process, how to use the High School Directory, and tips for a balanced application firsthand from High School Admissions staff.
