How to Apply

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.

STEP 1 – REQUEST INFORMATION AND CONNECT WITH US.

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. Join us for an upcoming tour; offered on campus every Monday and Friday. Contact Kevin Ramos-Glew, Director of Enrollment by cell 508-205-4270 or by email at kevin@neiacademy.org.

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 join us for a conversation in person. It’s an opportunity to find out how and why NEIA is the ideal environment for developing your passion for learning. We welcome you to participate in an un-interview 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 meeting that best suits your interest and comfort level.

STEP 3 – BEGIN YOUR APPLICATION.

We value the experience of applying to a new school. We intend to make the process of applying fair to families and as seamless as possible. Keeping this in mind, we have designed a straightforward application process. Applicants must register to create an account and follow the instructions provided to submit teacher recommendations, essays, and other materials. Within the application, students can define what innovation means to them. Register now to begin your application.

NEIA also accepts the Enrollment Management Association’s Standard Application Online (SAO). NEIA will receive your application once you submit it to SAO.
