Would you like an example of how human-centered design (HCD) works? We believe that applying to NEIA should be mutually engaging, informative, and enjoyable. You learn as much about yourself as you learn about our school. Like you, we value learning through doing, playing, connecting, and creating—so we place great importance on getting to know you and your passion through discovery (online or on campus). The entire admission process at NEIA is an extended conversation—full of questions, answers, reflections, and ideas.SCROLL/DRAG

Learn more about New England Innovation Academy by completing the online inquiry form. In response, we will share a look at how human-centered design at NEIA makes learning engaging, challenging, and fun.
Step 2 – Schedule your admission experience.
Even the word “interview” makes some students nervous—as if their character and ability are in doubt, evaluated by a series of tricky questions over a short span of time. At NEIA, we believe that your admission experience should be a learning opportunity: a mutual, candid, enlightening, and engaging conversation. We want to get to know you and encourage you to ask questions to find out how and why NEIA is the ideal environment for developing your passion for learning. We welcome you to campus to gain insight into what innovation looks like and share how we are creating a school to serve future innovators, like you. We look forward to connecting safely and will work individually to create an in-person or virtual visit that best suits your interest and comfort level.
Step 3 – Begin your application.
We value the experience of applying to a new school. It is our intention to make the process of applying fair to families and as seamless as possible. Keeping this in mind, our applicants will use a common online application, namely the Enrollment Management Association’s Standard Application Online (SAO).
Applicants must register to create an account and follow the instructions provided to submit teacher recommendations, essays, and other materials. Within the application, students have the option of defining what innovation means to them in a creative way. NEIA will receive your application once you have paid the $75.00 SAO fee.
Due date: Applications are due January 15, 2021.
Standardized Tests: NEIA is a test-optional school. You are welcome to submit any standardized testing with your application.
