Enrollment

Elm City Montessori opened in August 2014 and we’re growing each year until we serve PreK-3 through 8th grade (ages 3 through 14). For the 2019-2020 school year, we have 5 Primary classrooms (ages 3-6) and 3 Lower Elementary classrooms (ages 6-9) and 2 Upper Elementary classrooms (ages 9+). The application period for the 2020-2021 school year has closed; we hosted four open houses during the month of February, and hosted a virtual open house for accepted families in April (See embedded video below). To support new families who have not yet visited our school, here are some quick virtual tours of some classroom spaces:

Application Process

New Haven residents apply for our school through the New Haven Public Schools (NHPS) school placement process. Families can apply online, mail in a paper form to the Board of Education at 54 Meadow Street, New Haven. Application forms are typically available beginning in February at choice.nhps.net — please refer to this website for the next NHPS application deadline. Please contact the NHPS Choice and Enrollment Office at  (203) 946-8501 with questions about the school placement process.

Elm City Montessori also has limited spaces for students from other towns in Connecticut. Families who live outside New Haven may apply online through the ACES Open Choice Program here. Applications for the ACES Open Choice program open in March and are due in April.
