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 Regents in Algebra, Living Systems and Greek by the end of eighth grade, which provides them the opportunity to graduate with an Advanced Regents Diploma
from high school.
