How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in the Marine Science Magnet High School!

The application period for the 2017-2018 school year is now closed.

2018-2019 School Year
MSMHS will begin accepting student applications for the 2018-2019 school year on October 1, 2017. We will host two open houses in the late fall - one in November 2017 and one in December 2017, which we encourage interested families to attend. Our application period will be open from October 1, 2017 into early January 2018. Applicants are chosen through an on-line lottery process. There are no prerequisites for applying to MSMHS: students who are residents of Connecticut and are currently enrolled in the 8th grade are eligible to submit an application for the MSMHS freshman class. Please check back with us in September for more information.

For more information or if you have any questions, please call Bonnie MacHaffie (MSMHS Office Manager) at 860-446-9380 ext. 602, or send an email to
