In response to the COVID 19 pandemic, the CHSEE team has partnered with the Diocese of Brooklyn and the Archdiocese of New York to use the same online TACHS exam for all students. Registration details will be available on the CHSEE website beginning August 3rd. The TACHS exam will be given on November 7, 2020.
Please remember that CHSEE does not require or promote CHSEE Preparation Courses. Both the CHSEE and TACHS exam are designed to measure student cognitive skills rather than knowledge of particular subjects. If you choose to enroll your child in a Prep course, we recommend that you check with the provider that the preparation is relevant to the TACHS exam.
