    High School Fairs

    Come to a high school fair to meet schools in your borough! Fairs will take place from 10am to 3pm on September 22 and 23 and October 13 and 14. 

    The Brooklyn fairs will have schools from Brooklyn and will be at a different location each weekend:

    September 22 and 23
    John Dewey High School 
    50 Avenue X 
    Brooklyn, NY 11223 

    At all of the fairs, there will be workshops on high school admissions at 10:15am and 12:30pm.  (If you’re interested in schools in other boroughs, you can go to those fairs, too.)

    Use this survey(Open external link) to register for these fairs. Registration is not required, but we encourage you to register so that we know how many people to expect.
