Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT) is an examination administered to eighth and ninth grade students residing in New York City and used to determine admission to all but one of the city’s nine Specialized High Schools.

TPNY is the only company to combine content and strategy based test prep with the groundwork of holistic and mindful methods. We’re confident in providing comprehensive solutions to manifesting your best score because we deal with ALL of you: mental, physical, and emotional.

Our tutors are well versed in the Specialized High School admission process. Based in New York City, TPNY’s tutoring programs help direct students towards the high schools they’re looking to attend while also introducing them to the rigorous academic curriculum they’ll face once they gain admission.

Whether through a TPNY course or one-on-one tutoring, we evaluate each student’s strengths and weaknesses to create a customized action for ultimate success.

If you, your child, and/or student are stressed out, have issues with time management on high stakes tests, or are just beginning the test prep journey, we also offer our signature MindFlow class–a one-day, five-hour class designed to jumpstart improvements on high stakes tests by disrupting bad reading and study habits, and replacing them with more effective methods to advance performance.
