Applying to Aquinas High School
Eighth grade students wishing to attend Aquinas High School must take the TACHS (Test for Admission into Catholic High Schools). The test is administered in November for eighth grade students applying for admission to the September freshman class.
Applications for TACHS are available in Catholic elementary schools and high schools or by contacting the Office of the Superintendent of Schools, Archdiocese of New York: (212) 371-1000. Completed applications must be mailed as directed in the application. The Aquinas High School code is 213.
Aquinas awards full/partial Academic Scholarships to academically gifted students based on their TACHS exam results. In addition, TACHS scores and the applicant's grade records serve as a guide for the placement of freshmen in classes.
For Students who did not sit for the TACHS Exam, they must take an Aquinas High School Admissions Test. This Admissions Test is approximately 90 minutes and is used to evaluate the student's ability in English Language Arts and Mathematics. Please contact our Admissions Office if you wish to schedule your daughter for this exam.
For more information, contact Ms. Kelly Hernandez, Director of Admissions at: email@example.com or by telephone at 718-367-2113, ext 137
