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 calling our enrollment team or joining us on an upcoming tour. We will share a look at how human-centered design at NEIA makes learning engaging, challenging, and fun. Tours are offered on campus every Monday and Friday.

STEP 2 – 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. Take a moment to create an account and complete your initial information form.

STEP 3 – SCHEDULE AN UN-INTERVIEW.

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. It’s an opportunity to find out how and why NEIA is the ideal environment for developing your passion for learning. 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. Schedule an un-interview by using the application portal!

STEP 4 – COMPLETE A FAMILY INDIVIDUALIZED TUITION FORM.

We intend to work with each family to create a tuition plan that is more transparent and equitable. At NEIA, we understand that families need to plan ahead for investing in their child’s education and the FIT form enables NEIA to take the guesswork out of the process. Families will receive an individualized tuition plan within two weeks of completing their FIT form. If you don’t require an individualized tuition model, please select “no” on this form and submit it.

STEP 5 – COMPLETE GUARDIAN AND STUDENT STATEMENTS.

These statements are available in the application portal. Please review and submit your responses.

STEP 6 – COLLECT OR REQUEST ANY SCHOOL DOCUMENTS.

Within the application portal, you will be asked to submit a transcript, any teacher recommendations, and an IEP or other documentation.

STEP 7 – OPTIONAL TEST RESULTS.

NEIA is a test-optional school. You are welcome to submit any standardized testing with 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.
