Please call or email Professional Assistant Shari Cooper, at 470-254-8516, in order to schedule an appointment to complete registration. (Please call the front office at 470-254-2870 during summer hours as I will not be available to answer calls at my office). You may print and complete all the necessary paperwork prior to your appointment. (If you have a rising 6th grader coming from a Feeder School that is zoned for our school, there is NO need to register your student. You will need to fulfill the residency verification requirement).
