specialized and main round touring info so far

Every year HS411 gets a bit bigger and I’m always working towards finding the best way to share info. The set up below is new and I’m hoping it’ll help you stay on top of things. 

Below is all the info I’ve found so far for what’s going on this fall. I’ve noted whether schools host tours or open houses whenever possible, which schools are part of the DOE’s diversity initiative, and I’ve also noted websites for schools that have them (I had no idea there are schools that don’t have their own websites). And, some of these schools are new to me, some post zero info on their websites, and then there’s always the twist that schools will change things up and offer different options this fall. An example, this year Bard Queens is requiring no sign ups for anything while last year their open houses were up there with the hardest to book in the city. Bard Manhattan is hosting a Saturday open house this fall - that’s a first. They’ve always been on school days.

ALSO, you’ll see there are conflicts. Schools don’t consult with each other about when they’re booking things. I mentioned Brooklyn Tech and one of Stuy’s open houses are on the same night. One of Beacon’s open houses is the same night as American Studies (specialized). I’d suggest marking what you’re interested in in calendars. For audition schools, check websites for audition info.

I’ll send out individual emails when info becomes available per school, and then will send out additional updated lists when there’s a bunch more to update.
