Our program admits families of any race, creed, color, sexual orientation and national or ethnic origin. While we primarily accept students on a first-come, first-serve basis, we also consider other factors that help us to create a diverse community such as race, gender, age, inclusion and schedule.

We are a year round program that operates Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for a school and our aftercare is from 3:00 p.m. to 5:15 p.m.

The admission procedure is as follows:

  • Our enrollment process begins with a submission of a family application. Families may return their application in person or by mailing it to the school’s address 1212 McPherson Ave., Atlanta, GA 30316, along with a $50 application fee.
  • When the family has returned a family application and a space becomes available, a school visit and family interview will be scheduled. If there is no space available, the child will be placed on our wait list.
  • Once it has been mutually determined that The Highlander School would be a good fit for the family and school, a welcoming letter and an enrollment package will be sent out. 
  • Prior to the family’s first day at The Highlander School, there must a home visit and an orientation.

Upon entering the program, all parents are required to fill out and maintain the required forms for the child’s file, including a statement from the physician and proof of current immunizations.
