About the School Choice Placement Process - Fall 2022 Enrollment

In addition to providing quality education and innovative programs, New Haven Schools of Choice are designed to foster racial, ethnic and economic diversity among students. There is an application process and lottery system for placement in these schools. 

All students applying to a Magnet, Charter or Kindergarten at a Neighborhood School must submit an Application by Friday, February 28, 2022 to enter the Lottery. Do not submit your application to the school or school personnel. If any information on the application is not the same information on file in the Office, the Application will be returned to you.  

The School Choice Placement Process:

Applications to enter the School Choice Placement Process will be available starting Monday, January 31, 2022 online. We look forward to receiving your application via our online system at that time.


Results of the School Choice Placement Process will be available online and emailed to you.  You can also visit the Choice & Enrollment Office to obtain the results in person.
