For over 50 years, A. Fantis has prepared families of our middle school students to navigate the difficult process of high school admissions in NYC by collaborating to find the proper placement for each individual student. From Laguardia
and Brooklyn Tech
, Dominican Academy
and Xavier High School
, Poly Prep
, our students have graduated from a variety of premier high schools that best suits the needs of each individual student and family.
Beginning in sixth grade, the High School Admissions Team provides support for families. This includes Info Sessions for parents, test prep, and Admissions Events with select High Schools. In the spring, seventh grade students and families attend individualized planning meetings to review options and schedule important events for the year, such as test dates, fairs, and Open Houses. The A. Fantis High School Admissions Team meets with each student individually throughout the year as well to monitor progress. Seventh grade students also begin preparation for any applicable exams, such as the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT
) and the Test for Admission into Catholic High Schools (TACHS)
, with tutoring assistance after-school.
The rigorous curriculum of A. Fantis, combined with individualized support, helps our students prepare to complete the High School Regents Examinations in 5 subjects—Algebra, Living Environment, US History, English, and Greek—by the end of 8th grade. This provides the opportunity to graduate with an Advanced Regents Diploma
from high school.
