Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Friends School of Atlanta campus is currently closed and school is proceeding online. We therefore have put all tours, open houses and other visits on hold until it is safe to reopen the campus. We do, however, want to hear from you. Alvanita Hope-Negrón, Director of Enrollment, is available by email and can arrange a phone call. Also, our social media platforms offer great information on the life and values of the school. If you haven’t already done so, please follow us on Facebook and Instagram. Instagram, especially, has a “day in the life” campaign going that will give you a good idea of our classroom experiences.
Meanwhile, we are still accepting applications for 2020-2021, class space permitting. The school, however, cannot accept new applications for financial aid past the deadline, which was February 7, 2020.
To learn more about FSA admissions for the 2020–2021 school year, please come to an Open House and/or make a reservation for a tour. Our Open Houses, always held on a Saturday, offer a great opportunity for the whole family to drop in, see the school and talk to teachers, staff and other parents. Our parent-only tours are held during the school day and provide in-depth information about FSA’s programs, philosophy and culture as well as give you a chance to observe classes in session and tour the campus.

FSA is a member of the Atlanta Area Association of Independent Schools (AAAIS) and abides by the AAAIS admissions calendar. Accordingly, admissions decisions will be emailed on April 4, 2020. The notification letter will include financial aid awards, where relevant. All applicants offered enrollment will have until Thursday, April 16, 2020, to return a signed contract and deposit. Please note that member schools of AAAIS all agree not to initiate contact with applicant families until after the deadline for returning contracts. Applicant families, however, may reach out at any time during this period with questions and requests.
