Choosing a Catholic High School
The Test for Admission to Catholic High Schools (on Saturday, November 4, 2017) is accepting applicants now. Parents are urged to look at this information site and read each of the links in the left-hand column. You may have to print some forms and directions. The list of schools is posted sideways on the PDF, so printing those pages would help you to read the information. It appears that the nine Catholic high schools of the borough of Brooklyn offer 1,210 places for incoming freshmen, but high schools in other boroughs might be convenient for some. Please note that the TACHS exam will forward your score to three high schools. ---- Please also note the dates of the Open House visitations and the Information Fairs. --- The cost of the test is $63. ---
The tuition-free Regis High School in Manhattan has a different system of admission, so a boy may take TACHS for other schools while still applying to Regis. Please see http://www.regis.org/section/?id=20
