Don’t worry; you got this!

Need to take New York State Regents Examinations this month?

Next week, the State’s Regents exams are scheduled on Monday, January 22 – Thursday, January 25.

To summarize, Regents exams are used by the State to measure New York students’ mastery and understanding of what they are learning in school. To earn a standard high school diploma (Regents diploma) from any high school based in New York State, students must score a 65 or higher on at least five Regents exams.

For many of our students, performing well on next week’s Regents exams can mean the difference between graduating from high school at the end of June and staying in school throughout the summer and into the new school year. For others, great Regents scores open up students’ opportunities for advanced classes, honors programs, and other in-school activities.

Next week’s State’s Regents schedule will be as follows:

On behalf of the DOE, we wish all of our Regents-taking students TONS OF SUCCESS on their exams this month!
