There is no simple way to determine if a given individual is right for The Community School. We want to evaluate each applicant comprehensively. This process may include multiple visits individually and in a group setting. The process will be different for every family, but it will include, at a minimum, the following steps:
- Attendance at an Information Session.
- Parent visit to observe the program.
- Completion of an application and submission of relevant reports and evaluations.
- Individual interview with applicant and parents.
- Applicant visit to the program, usually for an extended period (i.e., half or full day).
While enrollment often takes place before the beginning of the program year, an applicant may be admitted during the year if a vacancy exists.
To begin the process, please contact the TCS Office at 404-308-8548 or use this Contact Form to find out the date of our next Open House, or to schedule an introductory visit to TCS.
To apply, please use one of the application links below. You may print this out and complete it, or edit it in your word processing program and email it back to us.
Please send all supporting documentation and an application fee of $150 to us at:
