Discovery Programs

Summer 2022 Discovery Program Information

The NYC Department of Education will hold Discovery Programs at the eight testing Specialized High Schools in summer 2022. Summer Discovery programs are approximately three to five weeks long and provide opportunities for certain disadvantaged students who scored within a certain range on the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT) during the 2021-2022 school year to attend a testing Specialized High School starting Fall 2022.

Only the students who received Discovery information in the SHSAT results letter in April 2022 can apply to a summer 2022 Discovery program. If your child has Discovery information in their SHSAT results letter, then please follow the instructions in that letter to submit your child’s Discovery application to your child’s current school counselor. The deadline to submit is May 13, 2022. 

If your child did not receive Discovery information in their SHSAT results letter in April 2022, then your child cannot apply to or participate in any summer 2022 Discovery program.

For students who submit a Discovery application and are confirmed to be eligible to participate, program information listed is below. Each student who submits a Discovery application, and is determined to be eligible, can only participate in the Discovery program listed on their Discovery application; students cannot switch to a different Discovery program.

Each Discovery program’s details are below:
