How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in the Marine Science Magnet High School!
The application period for the 2020-2021 school year is now closed.

MSMHS will begin accepting student applications for the 2021-2022 school year on October 1, 2020. We will host two open houses in the late fall of 2020 – one in November and one in December, which we encourage interested families to attend.
  Our application period will be open from October 1, 2020 into early January 2021. 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 at the time of applying 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
