Interested in enrolling your child?

The New Haven Public Schools application period for students entering PreK-8th grade will be January 30 – March 1, 2024.

In 2024-2025, we will serve PreK-3 through 8th grade (ages 3 through 14) with 5 Primary classrooms (PreK/K), 4 Lower Elementary classrooms (Grades `1-3), 3 Upper Elementary classrooms (Grades 4-6), and 1 Erdkinder classroom (Grades 7-8). Effective in the fall of 2024, children will need to turn 5 on or before September 1 of the school year in order to be automatically eligible to enroll in kindergarten (and as a corollary will need to turn 3 on or before September 1 of the school year in order to be eligible to enroll in PreK3) To learn more, here is the CSDE memo.

We are excited to welcome prospective families to our open houses to learn more about our philosophy, our program, and our community.
