HAP Summer Programs
Higher Achievement Program (HAP)Dear Families, if your son has been accepted into a HAP program this summer please check the programs website for updates on the status of the summer program. At this time we are not aware of any decisions made about the programs.

Offered at Xavier High School, Fordham Prep High School , and St. John’s Prep
TACHS Exam Information
Eighth grade students who wish to apply for admission to area Catholic High Schools may need to take the Test for Admission to Catholic High Schools, depending upon the requirements of their school(s) of choice. Students who register for the TACHS examination will receive an entry ticket approximately one week prior to the exam. Students will enter their three Catholic school choices (from among the Catholic schools who utilize the TACHS exam) on the entry ticket, the parent will sign the ticket and the student presents the ticket upon entry to the exam.
The TACHS examination is scheduled for Friday, November 6th, 2020 and the student's test site is assigned by the Archdiocese of New York. The TACHS Registration site will accept internet registrations from August 24, 2020 until 5:00 PM on Monday, October 19th, 2020. For students who wish to request additional time for testing, based upon an established 504 Plan or IEP, the deadline for registering and submitting documentation to the Archdiocese (not the TACHS Office) is October 9, 2020.
Mail documentation to:
Ms. Carmen Leon
Archdiocese of NY
1011 First Avenue
NY NY 10022
Parents can access the TACHS Handbook, which contains sample test questions and additional registration information, on the TACHS website. Please note that parents must submit documentation for additional testing time. St. Stephen of Hungary School can help answer questions about submitting documentation but cannot submit the documentation for additional testing time on your behalf.
Once students are registered for the test, an account is established and St. Stephen of Hungary School can begin to populate your child's account with transcript information, etc. This will be done by the school and no further action is required by you.
