ENROLLMENT AND LOTTERY DETAILS
Each year, the enrollment process will a) fill a new grade of Kindergarten students, and b) position students to take seats that may come available in first grade and above.
To the extent that demand exceeds the number of available seats for any given grade, the administration will conduct a public, system-generated, grade-level lottery. The public lottery will take place at Atlanta Classical Academy, 3260 Northside Drive, Atlanta, GA 30305. Lottery results will be posted to each applicant’s online SchoolMint account on the day of the lottery.
In accordance with Atlanta Classical Academy’s charter and as permitted by OCGA § 20-2-206 6, Atlanta Classical Academy will grant enrollment preference to the siblings of currently-enrolled students, to the children of board members, and to the children of full-time employees.
Sibling preference refers to giving preference in the lottery to students who already have a sibling enrolled at the school. “Sibling” means a person with whom a child shares one or both parents in common by blood, adoption, or marriage, even if the marriage was terminated by death or dissolution. Siblings reside at least 50% of the time in the same household. Siblings, for the purpose of Atlanta Classical Academy’s enrollment process, must reside within the Atlanta Public Schools district. The lottery will be conducted on a grade-by-grade basis, and the results of the lottery for one sibling will have no bearing on the results of another sibling who is also participating in the lottery.
The result of the lottery for rising Kindergarten students will be a list of 50 “seated” students, plus a numerical wait list. The result of the lottery for first grade students and above will be a numerical wait list. The school will use the wait list to offer available seats to students on a grade-by-grade basis as they become available.
