Admission to Highville Charter School & Highville Change Academy
Highville Charter School is a public charter school authorized by the Connecticut State Department of Education. We are not part of any local public school system but report directly to the State of Connecticut Commissioner of Education.
Who is Eligible
Any resident of Connecticut is eligible to participate in our lottery. Upon acceptance, residency must be proven by submitting a copy of a household utility bill. Applications are accepted for children entering pre-school (3 & 4-year-olds) through the 12th grade. The birth date cut-off date for preschool and Kindergarten enrollment is Oct. 1.
Siblings of current Highville Scholars are given preferential admission. The definition of a sibling is a brother or sister having one or both parents in common, or a child living in the same household for whom you are legally responsible. Sibling status does NOT apply to siblings of graduating 8th grade students not attending HCA.
Siblings will be placed directly on the admissions list and be admitted as space allows, in the order their applications were received.
