Arts Pathway

We are now accepting 6-12th grade applications to the New London Magnet School for Visual & Performing Arts for the 2021-2022 school year!

Apply Online: by January 30th.


  • Families can still submit applications for the current school year applicant pool and will receive a SchoolMint message if a spot becomes available.
  • Students currently in the Arts magnet pathway do NOT need to submit an application as they automatically retain their seat through high school graduation, unless they choose to switch pathways.
  • Siblings of students who will still be in the pathway in the year the sibling applies for enrollment MUST submit an application, but will have priority seating in the lottery process.

Overview of the Arts Pathway

Students who attend our Arts Pathway schools experience an academic program where rigorous academics are infused through the arts. Using the HOT Schools model of strong arts, arts integration and democratic practice, our students are exposed to and immersed in the arts including vocal and instrumental music, visual art, dance, theatre, media arts, and interdisciplinary arts. At the high school level, students focus on one arts area as their “major.”

While students can be prepared to pursue the arts as a career after high school, an arts-rich education develops students to be successful in any field. In fact, Nobel Laureates in the sciences are 17 times more likely to have studied the arts!


Current 8th grade families:

All current Arts Magnet 8th grade students will automatically  have a seat in our 9th grade by reserving their seat. Any seats not reserved will be opened up to lottery applicants who do not currently attend the school.
