9th Grade Admissions

Demand for high school admissions testing has far exceeded our capacity. Therefore, The Baccalaureate School for Global Education does not require a high school admissions test. To be considered for 9th grade admissions, applicants must simply rank BSGE on the NYC public high school application they file with their 8th grade guidance counselor. Private and parochial school students can contact the NYCDOE Office of Student Enrollment for a copy of this application.

As published in the Directory of NYCDOE Public High Schools, 9th grade admissions to Baccalaureate School for Global Education will continue to be based on the following guidelines:

No reservations are required.

Attendance is not taken at Open House events and is not a factor in admissions. Each Open House includes a self-guided building walk and a brief overview of our instructional program. Our Open House dates are usually held in the month of October. This year's virtual open house will be uploaded to the website in January 2021.  Please feel free to view our orientation videos at the bottom of the Admissions page to learn about BSGE.
