Still accepting applications, class space permitting, for the current 2021-22 academic year.
Thank you for your interest in The Friends School of Atlanta. The following checklist for applicant families is designed to be user-friendly as well as to move you through a process that allows FSA to get to know you and your child(ren) as well as for you to obtain a deeper appreciation for the values-based education offered by FSA.
The Friends School of Atlanta (FSA) uses an online application system called Ravenna to organize all admissions applications, registration forms and more. The online application will be available in mid-October. In the meantime, please create an account within Ravenna to receive notifications about Parent Informational Tours and Open Houses for the current admissions season – all of which take place from October through April.
To learn more about FSA admissions for the 2021–2022 school year, please come to an Open House and/or make a reservation for a Parent Informational Tour.
The best way to determine if The Friends School of Atlanta is the right school to support your child’s academic and social-emotional journey is to join us for one of our regularly scheduled Parent Informational Tours. These tours are conducted in small groups and provide in-depth information about the programs and culture of FSA.
- We have limited openings available for the current school year, so please apply online in Ravenna if you are interested in the current academic year.
Applications for 2022-2023 will be available in Ravenna on October 1, 2021.
A completed application consists of the following by the admissions deadlines:
- Application and application fee
- Parent questionnaire
- School records (report cards), as appropriate, from last semester and 2 years prior (if applicable)
- The AAAIS Teacher Evaluation Common Form from your child’s current teacher(s).
- If applicable, any IEP, 504 plan or psychoeducational evaluation reports
As a member of the Atlanta Area Association of Independent Schools (AAAIS), The Friends School of Atlanta has agreed to abide by certain common admissions procedures. Online notifications will be posted in your Ravenna account at 8:00am on Saturday, April 2, 2022. The deadline for families to accept an offer of enrollment is Thursday, April 14, 2022. Please note that both the admission decision and financial aid award decision will be communicated on April 2, 2022.
All member schools have agreed not to initiate contact with families between April 2nd and April 15th to protect applicant families from being pressured by schools. While we will return phone calls and emails initiated by applicant families, this policy does not allow for visits to campus or meetings with representatives of our school during this period. You can find the AAAIS Principles of Best Practice here.
