About the SHSAT
The Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT) is the only criterion for admissions to eight of the nine New York City Specialized High Schools. The only exception is the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts, which requires an audition or portfolio for admission.
Our SHSAT teachers are dedicated, committed, passionate, and top-of-their-class. See why they stand out to us and to our students.
Why Prep for the SHSAT with Kaplan?
Kaplan's comprehensive courses are research-based and specifically designed to help students score higher on the SHSAT.
Our founder, Stanley H. Kaplan, invented the test prep industry in Brooklyn over 75 years ago. While today Kaplan is a global educational provider, our roots will always be right here in New York.
We focus on teaching your child strategies while also reviewing content on the test. It’s not enough to feel prepared. Your child should be confident on Test Day.
We emphasize maximizing your child’s available study time with the right strategies and methods—not laboring on rote memorization and drill techniques. Your child should prep smarter, not harder.
We understand a high SHSAT score can change the trajectory of your child’s education. To this end, we are dedicated to helping your child achieve his or her goals—we succeed when your child succeeds.
