Admission Assessment 

A completed math and writing assessment is required to apply to BHSEC Queens. We invite you to take your assessment at our Queens or Manhattan campus.  No matter which location you choose, you can still apply to either school, or better your chances of admittance to a BHSEC program by applying to both!

Round 2

Please note, if you have already taken an assessment exam in the 2014-2015 school year you do NOT need to retake our assessment exam.

We are currently assessing Special Education students who are interested in applying for the 9th grade.  Unfortunately, we no longer have any space for General Education students for 9th grade for the 2015-2016 school year.
