Welcome to New Haven Academy Interdistrict Magnet School, where we take our mission of getting to know each other well seriously!

At New Haven Academy, kids and adults work together to make the learning community better and to take on the challenges of being active citizens in the world. Many people connected to New Haven Academy use the word “family” to describe the connections and support experienced here. We combine that strong commitment to nurturing students with incredibly high expectations. We believe that all students can learn and succeed.

How to Know New Haven Academy is Right for Your Child:

  • Your child likes to get involved in their school and in the world
  • Your child wants to be a leader and a deep thinker
  • Your child gets passionate about big ideas and likes to discuss them passionately

Unique Ways Your Child Can Learn and Grow Here:

  • Class sizes of 20 students and fewer, which means students develop confidence in themselves to have an impact as citizens by really being heard and known by teachers and peers
  • The principal knows every child well and students get very involved with faculty that feels like family so they come away with a life-long love of learning and continuous improvement to be productive members of society
  • Four years of service-learning ending in a Social Action Project each student designs to change the world so that students go out into the world with a burning desire to help improve it

2013 Lottery Results Data

2013 Lottery Results Data 

In an effort to help families make informed decisions about choosing a school, New Haven Public Schools is publishing last year’s lottery data for each Magnet and Charter School. Although the data change year to year, you can see a snapshot by grade level of how many seats were available for each school. Also, you can see how many applicants applied, how many applicants lived in the neighborhood, and how many applicants had siblings. These numbers reflect a combined total of all first, second and third school choices of each applicant. The seats and applicants are specific to New Haven residents. In the suburban booklet, the seats and applicants are specific to suburban applicants. We hope this information, along with the opportunity to attend open houses, will help families choose schools that will fit the needs of their children.
