Thank you for your interest in Porter Academy. Admission to Porter Academy is based on the individual profile stemming from assessments, school reports, a parent interview, and a student visit.

Procedures for Admission:

  1. Contact our Assistant Director of Admissions to schedule a tour.
    You may call the school at 770-594-1313 or email us at
  2. Fill out an application and return it with a $100 non-refundable application fee. Please include with your completed application current psychological assessments and other pertinent assessments/evaluations that would assist us in the admissions process. If your child currently has an Individual Education Plan (IEP), please include this in the completed packet.
  3. Once we receive a completed application packet, an administrator will contact you to set up a school visit for your child. Visits are scheduled on Wednesdays, Thursdays, or Fridays. We will meet with the parent at the end of the visit to offer feedback and answer any questions you may have. An administrative committee will review all information and contact you within a week of the visit regarding your child’s admission to Porter Academy.
  4. An Enrollment Contract will be offered once your child has been accepted. We ask that the contract and deposit be returned within two weeks. Porter Academy has a rolling admission process and accepts applications throughout the year for the following academic year.
  5. Current school year transfers are accepted based on availability.
