How to Apply:

  • New Haven residents apply through the New Haven Public Schools (NHPS) process at choice.nhps.net. Any time of the year, contact the NHPS Choice and Enrollment Office at NHPSRegistration@nhboe.net or (203) 946-8501 with questions about the process.
  • In past years, Elm City Montessori has had very limited spaces for students from other towns in Connecticut to apply through the ACES Open Choice Program. Unfortunately, we did not have new Open Choice seats available for the 2022-23 school year.
