About this course
The Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT) is the sole criterion for admission to 8 of the 9 Specialized High Schools in New York City (LaGuardia is a portfolio/audition school). The test is broken into two parts: English Language Arts (Revising/Editing) and Mathematics. The questions can be answered in any order, allowing students to skip back and forth between the two sections.
The schools that use the SHSAT for admission are listed below:
- The Bronx High School of Science
- The Brooklyn Latin School
- Brooklyn Technical High School
- High School for Mathematics, Science and Engineering at City College of New York
- High School of American Studies at Lehman College
- Queens High School for the Sciences at York College
- Staten Island Technical High School
- Stuyvesant High School
At Tutoring by Christine, SHSAT class sizes are capped at ten students, allowing students to ask questions and to get one-on-one support from expert instructors; 30 plus hours of intensive training that consist of five full length practice tests. Students will be taught with a variety of materials, all of which will be supplied to them.
Students enrolled in our test prep program will receive intensive training to successfully complete all parts of the exam. Not only will students review tactics and content, but students will receive instructions and practice in time management strategies. This is critical as many of the tests that students take in traditional schools are no longer timed, and students are often lacking in this area because of this.
Homework will be assigned each week to reinforce the concepts and strategies taught in class.
All materials will be provided.
