TACHS Test Prep in Staten Island, Manhattan & Brooklyn

For catholic high schools within the Archdiocese of New York, the “Test for Admission into Catholic High School,” or “TACHS,” exam is used in part to determine admission.  

The range of scores that schools look for varies, and some schools place more weight on the TACHS exam than others.  Generally speaking, more competitive schools place more weight on your test score.  The TACHS exam can also help you gain admissions into honors programs and scholarship programs within the high school.
