School Choice applications can be submitted online from March 11-29, 2019. Acceptance via the Student Transfer Process is subject to approval by Atlanta Public Schools.

We believe education drives social change. In our community, character and academics are of equal importance. All of our scholars can learn and will learn. Through a rigorous and relevant curriculum, we will empower scholars to thrive as future change agents. In every way, we challenge the status quo. We value a positive sense of self, critical thinking, character development, and creativity as the tools our scholars will leverage to change the world.
