    2247) between August 23, 2021, 9:00 AM EST and October 24, 2021, 11:59 PM EST. Do not miss the
    deadline!
❏   On the day you register, read and review the follow-up email that will be sent to you which will provide
    other important information regarding preparing for testing and the next necessary steps.
❏   If applicable, complete and submit the Eligibility Form for Students Needing Extended Testing Time to
    your aligned diocese no later than October 8, 2021. There are NO deadline exceptions.
❏   After you register (you will need your assigned TACHS ID), but prior to 5:00 PM EST on November 5,
    2021, enter your high school choices at www.tachsinfo.com. Your choices may be entered/changed up
    until November 5 at 5:00 PM EST. Failure to complete this information by November 5 will result in
    scores being unavailable to your high school choices.
❏   Attend high school information fairs/expos and open houses if they are available. (Attendance is
    optional.)
❏   Answer sample test questions in the back of the online Student Handbook. No online practice test is
    available.
❏   On November 1, receive your test date/time/session code via the email address you provided at the
    time of registration. You will not be able to start your test session on the day/time of testing without
    this information. Between November 2–5, you may also access your test date/time/test session code at
    www.tachsinfo.com by entering your TACHS ID and email address or calling 1-866-61TACHS (1-866-
    618-2247) if you did not receive your email and/or are unable to access your test date/time/session code
    at www.tachsinfo.com.
❏   Continue to monitor www.tachsinfo.com for any updated Parent Guides/Tips for Testing Day
    up until your day of testing. Failure to do so may negatively impact the student testing
    experience.
❏   BE ON TIME. Students logging in more than 30 minutes after their test session begins will not be able
    to enter the exam.
❏   Begin the log-in process no less than 30 minutes prior to your test session time.
❏   Public school students: Provide your 8th grade counselor with a copy of the Applicant Record form with
    Section A completed, ask them to complete the remaining three sections, and photocopy as needed. A

    before December 15, 2021.
❏   Receive your High School Admissions Notice and scored Home Reports in mid- to late January, 2022.
❏   Riverside Insights®, along with the Archdiocese of New York, the Diocese of Brooklyn/Queens, and the
    Diocese of Rockville Centre (Long Island), does not encourage or endorse programs that coach/tutor
    students for the TACHS. The TACHS is a highly secure exam; therefore, programs that claim to have
    copies of the test are likely to be invalid. Doing well on tutoring practice tests does not guarantee the
    student will perform as well on the actual TACHS exam; test results of students who participate in these
    programs frequently offer distorted profiles of students’ abilities. Students who do well in elementary
    school can expect to do well on the TACHS. Sample questions and more information regarding the
    content of the exam can be found toward the end of this Student Handbook. This Student Handbook can
    be accessed at www.tachsinfo.com.

    Diócesis de Rockville Center (Long Island) no alentar o respaldar programas que entrenan/dan tutoría a
    los estudiantes para el TACHS. El TACHS es un examen seguro, por lo tanto, los programas que afirman
    tener copias de la prueba probablemente no sean válidos. Tener un buen desempeño en las pruebas de
    práctica de tutoría no garantiza que el estudiante se desempeñe tan bien en el examen TACHS real; Los
    resultados de las pruebas de los estudiantes que participan en estos programas ofrecen con frecuencia
    perfiles distorsionados de las habilidades de los estudiantes. Los estudiantes que obtienen buenos
    resultados en la escuela primaria pueden esperar que les vaya bien en el TACHS. Puede encontrar
    ejemplos de preguntas y más información sobre el contenido del examen hacia el final del Manual del
    estudiante que se encuentra en www.tachsinfo.com.

FACTS ABOUT THE TACHS
The Test for Admission into Catholic High Schools (TACHS) will test eighth grade students who
are interested in attending a Catholic high school beginning in September 2022. In order to be
admitted into Catholic high schools, students must take an admissions examination in November
2021. The results from that examination, along with school records and other information, are
then sent to the high school principals to assist them in making admission decisions. Each
student’s information will be sent to three high schools of his/her choice. Results also will be sent
to the Catholic elementary schools within the Archdiocese of New York, the Diocese of Brooklyn/
Queens, or the Diocese of Rockville Centre (Long Island).

ACADEMIC SKILLS TESTED
The TACHS measures academic achievement in reading, written expression, and mathematics,
along with general reasoning skills. The test has been developed with the advice and approval of
diocesan representatives.

EXAMINATION FEE
A nonrefundable examination fee of $65.00 will include this online Student Handbook, online
test materials, and the reporting of scores to three high schools of a student’s choice. Duplicate
registrations may result in a processing fee.

TEST CANDIDATES
The TACHS is for current eighth grade students only. Students wishing to apply to a
Catholic high school for a grade other than the ninth grade should apply directly to
that high school. A student may take the TACHS examination only once.

PARENT/GUARDIAN REPORTS
A Home Report will be sent to each student’s home address (provided at the time of registration)
in January 2022 after high school notifications have been sent. All TACHS test results are
final. No reviewing, rescoring, or retesting will be done.

SPECIAL TEST ACCOMMODATIONS FOR STUDENTS
The only accommodation allowed will be extended testing time (time and a half). An Eligibility
Form and further instructions for students needing extended testing time are located on page 5
of this handbook.

If a student is not approved for extended testing time, the student may choose to take the exam
without extended time or request a full refund of the $65 examination fee. Refund requests for
these students must be received by October 22, 2021, at 5:00 PM EST.

CHOOSING YOUR HIGH SCHOOLS
THE SELECTION PROCESS
 • You should choose three high schools to which you want to apply.
 • Your three high school choices will receive your TACHS scores.
 • Choosing which high school to attend is very important; you should consider your options
   carefully.
 • The high schools’ websites, along with open house information, will be available through
   www.tachsinfo.com. This information also is available in this Student Handbook.
 • Parents/guardians should accompany students to high school open houses and read school
   literature before students select their three high school options.
 • Discuss your options with your teacher, guidance counselor, or principal to determine which
   schools will be the best match for you.
 • Be realistic in your choices.
 • Make sure you are eligible for the schools to which you apply.
 • Determine daily travel times from your home to the schools and be sure you are willing to
   travel that distance.
 • Admission and scholarship decisions are the responsibility of the individual high schools.
 • After registering for the TACHS, you may enter your high school choices at www.tachsinfo.com.
 • Enter your high school choices by clicking on the “Select your (3) high school choices” link.
 • Enter your TACHS ID provided at the time of registration and your email address.
 • Use the pull-down menu to see a complete list of all high schools; it is not necessary to know
   a school’s three-digit code.
 • Enter your three high school choices and save.
 • If you need to change your high school choices, you may follow the same steps.
 • You may change your choices until November 5, 2021, at 5:00 PM EST.

 • Failure to complete this process will result in your scores not being provided to any schools.

                                               9
TEST SESSIONS
 • This year there will be online test sessions rather than in-person test sites.
 • Students will test on the day assigned to their aligned diocese.
 • Students will be assigned randomly to a test time of either 8:30 AM or 10:00 AM on their test
   date. No time preferences can be accepted. All students with extended testing time will test
   at 8:30 AM on their assigned test date.
 • There will not be admit cards.
 • On November 1, 2021, you should receive an email with your test session code, date, and time.
   If you do not receive this email by November 2, 2021, you may find this information on www.
   tachsinfo.com using the “Find my test session code/date/times” link. Locate this information
   no later than November 4, 2021, if you are testing on November 5, 2021, and no later than
   November 5 if you are testing on November 6, 2021.
 • Enter your TACHS ID and the email address you provided at the time of registration to
   access your information.
 • You will not be able to “enter” your test if you do not have this code.
 • Please read all data system and device requirements and complete the Proctorio set-up and
   required installation at least 1 day prior to testing. These directions can be found through
   the “Proctorio Set-up and Installation Guide” link on the www.tachsinfo.com homepage and
   in this Student Handbook.
 • If you are ill or have technical issues on the day of testing, you will be assigned to a make-up
   session. Revisit the “Find my test session code/date/times” link November 11–12, 2021, for
   your new test session code, date, and time. Your original test session code will not work for
   the make-up exam.
 • If at any time you are not able to access your test session code, call 1-866-618-2247 for
   assistance.

APPLICANT RECORDS
FOR STUDENTS ATTENDING A CATHOLIC ELEMENTARY SCHOOL IN THE
ARCHDIOCESE OF NEW YORK, THE DIOCESE OF BROOKLYN/QUEENS, OR THE
DIOCESE OF ROCKVILLE CENTRE (LONG ISLAND)
Your TACHS Applicant Record is available to your elementary school via the Internet once you have
registered for the exam. The last day to complete the Applicant Record online will be December 14,
2021, at 5:00 PM EST. Your principal, elementary school teacher, or counselor must complete the
TACHS Applicant Record. Beginning December 15, your three Catholic high school choices will be
able to access your completed Applicant Record via the Internet.

FOR STUDENTS ATTENDING A PUBLIC, PRIVATE, OR NON-DIOCESAN SCHOOL
Parents are requested to complete Section A of the TACHS Applicant Record found on page 12 of
this handbook before submitting it to the student’s eighth grade teacher, counselor, or principal,
who will complete the remaining three sections. It can be photocopied as needed. Upon completion,
a school official will make three copies of the form and mail them to the high schools indicated.
This form must be received by the designated high schools by December 15, 2021. Failure to return
this form to the high schools may prevent you from being considered for admission into the high
schools to which you are applying.

To assist the admissions process, it is important that high schools receive
  •   the final grades pertaining to Grade 6 and Grade 7,
  •   the first quarter or trimester grades for Grade 8,
  •   standardized testing results (if taken), and
  •   conduct, effort, and attendance records.

NOTE TO PARENTS/GUARDIANS: By registering for the TACHS Examination, you consent to
the release of your child’s student records.

If additional information is needed about a student for any of the schools, you may call the high
schools directly. (See Open House Information beginning on page 14 of this handbook.)

DO NOT return the Applicant Record to the TACHS Exam Office. Ask a school official
to send it to your child’s three high school choices.

SCHOLARSHIP AND FINANCIAL AID
Scholarship and financial aid decisions are made by each individual high school. Questions
regarding scholarships and financial aid should be directed to the high schools. The Archdiocese
of New York, the Diocese of Brooklyn/Queens, the Diocese of Rockville Centre (Long Island), and
Riverside Insights have no information regarding these school decisions.
