The Sport and Medical Sciences Academy is an inter-district magnet school which serves students eligible for public school in Connecticut. Admission to SMSA is based on a lottery system run by the State of Connecticut Department of Education and the Regional School Choice Office. Students who reside in Connecticut at the time of application are eligible to apply. Applications may also be accepted from parents/guardians who establish a verifiable Connecticut residency prior to the close of the on-time lottery application period. A Connecticut address (not a P.O. Box) is required to complete the RSCO lottery application. The application can be found at www.choiceeducation.org from November to February (check exact dates at that site).
