Admissions Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ
 
1. General SITHS Information: 
 
2. Information regarding the Specialized High School Admissions Test:
 
 
  • When is the SHSAT?  
    • Registered 8th grade students who attend a public DOE middle school: Will test at their current school during the school day on Thursday, December 2, 2021.
    • Registered 8th grade students who attend charter, private, parochial, or independent schools, or who are homeschooled: Will test at a central DOE location on Sunday, December 5, or Saturday, December 11, 2021.
    • All registered 9th grade students: will test at a central DOE location on Saturday, December 11, 2021 or Sunday, December 12, 2021.
  • Registration for the SHSAT: Registration is now open for the SHSAT. Registration is not first-come first-served; all students who register by the deadline will be able to take the SHSAT. 
    • Families will be able to register their child in the family-facing MySchools site (myschools.nyc).
    • Like last year, families or school staff will indicate each child’s preference order for the testing Specialized High Schools when they submit their SHSAT registration in MySchools.
    • The deadline to register for the SHSAT is November 15, 2021.
  • How many students are accepted to SITHS?
    • 9th Grade = 360, 10th Grade = Approx 20
  • How is the SHSAT graded?
    • Students are ranked from highest to lowest based upon their SHSAT score. In rank order, students are matched to their highest ranked school, which also still has available seats. Once a student is matched to a school that no longer has any seats, the next school on their ranked choice is matched to the student, as long as that school still has available seats.
  • Cut off score for Admission?
    • The cutoff score varies from year to year and isn’t really a cutoff score set by the NYC DOE, but more so the score of the person who earned the 360th (last) seat.
  • Does SI Tech have to be ranked first?
    • The school that is your highest prioritized school should be ranked first. If you rank SITHS second or third, it is more likely that a student who prioritized SITHS higher will be matched to the seat.
3. Are student tours/shadow programs available?
      • Due to COVID restrictions, not at this time. 
 
4. Which colleges do Tech students get into?
 
5. Are private bus accommodations available for students from Brooklyn?
      • With 50% of our students traveling from Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens, the MTA is the primary source of transportation for our students. Some families carpool and arrange for private van transportation to SITHS, but the majority rely on public transportation.
