Admission

*The Highlander School is not accepting Wait List Applications starting Monday, May 20th, 2024. We will resume accepting applications in the new school year on Tuesday, August 6th, 2024.

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.
