For Students Applying to High School During the 2021-2022 School Year, Entering High School in Fall 2022

  *   <https://www.schools.nyc.gov/sign-up> As announced by the Chancellor in December 2020, all geographic-based admissions priorities (priority to attend a particular high school program based on where a student lives) for high school admissions have been eliminated, beginning for students applying this year and entering high school in fall 2022.
  *   Sign up<https://www.schools.nyc.gov/sign-up> for our high school admissions email list to get the latest updates on admissions for fall 2022.

For information regarding Specialized High Schools, please go to schools.nyc.gov/SHS for information. Registration has not yet begun for the Specialized High School Test.

High School Applications

  • The high school application will open the week of January 24, 2022, and close during the week of February 28.

  • In response to feedback from community leaders, families, and schools, borough- and zone-based admissions priorities will remain in place this year. This means that some high school programs will continue to prioritize zoned applicants and/or applicants who live or currently attend middle school in a specific borough. District-based admissions priorities were eliminated last year and will continue to not be used in high school admissions.

  • For high school programs that screen applicants, multiple measures will be used to evaluate students this year. These measures will include submissions of work samples from last year, such as essays or reports, and first-semester grades from this school year.

  • MySchools will reflect these updates within the coming week.
