Enroll Your Child
KIPP Vision Primary will be a free, public charter school. Admission to KIPP Vision Primary will be granted to students regardless of prior academic record, conduct or socioeconomic background. This means there are no academic requirements that need to be met for enrollment. The only enrollment requirement is that your child resides within the Atlanta Public Schools district. If there are more interested students and families than we have space for, a lottery is conducted for admission. Upon enrollment, you will be asked to sign the school’s Commitment to Excellence outlines the commitments you, your child, and your child’s teacher agree to make to ensure a successful experience at KIPP Vision Primary.
Enrollment will open for the 2013-14 school year on January 1, 2013.
