Round 1 High School Admissions Results
Round 1 result letters, which include Specialized High School Admissions Test (SHSAT) and LaGuardia High School audition results, will be distributed by your current school (both public and private/parochial). If you have any questions about your high school match, please speak with your guidance counselor.

Round 2 of High School Admissions
All 8th grade and first time 9th grade students can participate in Round 2 of High School Admissions, including students who received an offer in Round 1. For students who are not satisfied with their Round 1 offer and choose to participate in Round 2, please note:

  • If you do not receive an offer in Round 2, you will keep your Round 1 offer.
  • If you receive an offer in Round 2, you will forfeit your Round 1 offer. You will not be able to choose between the two offers. We will not consider an appeal back to your Round 1 offer. 

In Round 2, students can apply to new high schools opening in September 2016 and other programs with available seats.  Round 2 Application will be available through your guidance counselor. The Directory of New Schools and the Round 2 Program List will also be available on the high school website
