Test for Admission into Catholic High Schools (TACHS)

TACHS LogoThe Test for Admission into Catholic High Schools (TACHS) tests eighth grade students who are interested in attending Catholic high school the following year. The results from that examination, along with school records and other information, are then sent to the high school principals to assist them in making admission decisions.

Each individual high school makes their own admission and scholarship decisions.  Please view our High School Guide (PDF) for information on high schools in Brooklyn and Queens.

TACHS is only for Grade 8 students, not students who have already completed Grade 8. Grade 9 transfer students and other students applying for admissions to Catholic High Schools in Brooklyn and Queens must go through an individualized admissions process and need to contact the high school’s admissions director.

TACHS will be administered on Saturday, November 5.  Registration begins in August. Again, it is only for Grade 8 students who wish to attend Catholic high school the following year. More information about registering for TACHS is available at tachsinfo.com.
