This Saturday, 45 8th graders and their families joined BEAM to hear about high schools, how to apply, and also to hear the perspectives of BEAM students now in high school. At the end of the event, students went home with personalized recommendations for which high schools to apply to as well as a calendar of next steps.
Missed the event? Here's some information and advice from our high school BEAM students.
You can read more about each of their high schools on InsideSchools:
8th graders? Interested in attending one of these schools?
- Next step for Academy for Software Engineering: sign up for their mailing list; then, attend an Open House
- Next step for Bard High School Early College: come to the essay writing workshop on October 1; then, take the admissions assessment with us on October 25
- Next step for Bronx Science: keep studying for the SHSAT and ask BEAM for help with that
- Next step for NEST+m: sign up for the entrance exam; we recommend the October 29 date, as it's exactly one week after the SHSAT
BEAM is here to help with high school! Please reach out if you have any questions.
