These two schools are adding an assessment component to their admissions process. This means that all applicants to either of these schools must complete a humanities writing task, a STEM writing task, and complete a video. You can see the details of these tasks on our website here. Items can be uploaded directly into MySchools through the Additional Materials page. You can review this video for instructions on how to submit your files.
Please note that both Townsend Harris and the Baccalaureate School for Global Education, along with Bard Manhattan and Bard Queens, are all using the same writing tasks. This means that families can complete and use the same writing task for all four schools. Families must complete a distinct video for Townsend Harris High School, a distinct video for the Baccalaureate School for Global Education, and a distinct video for the Bards.
These tasks must be uploaded into MySchools by Friday, December 9. As previously announced, the deadline to submit application choices is Thursday, December 1. No additional high schools will be adding an admissions assessment in this year’s process.
