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:

Admissions Priorities

  1. Priority to continuing 8th graders
  2. Then to Queens students or residents
  3. Then to New York City residents
Selection Criteria   
Average 6th Grade ELA/Math State Test Scores 40.00%
Average 6th Grade Final Grades 10.00%
Average 7th Grade Marking Period Grades 50.00%
Total: 100.00%

Students not continuing from our 8th grade will be Batch Ranked sequentially based on composite score.  For example, 1-100.

This year's virtual open house has been uploaded to the main Admissions page on this website. Please feel free to view our orientation videos also at the bottom of the Admissions page to learn about BSGE.

Attendance is not taken at Open House events and is not a factor in admissions. When the building is open (pre and post COVID restrictions) 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. 

No reservations are required.
