All new student applications must be postmarked by February 28, 2014. Please note: Please mail applications and all required documents by CERTIFIED MAIL to: The GLOBE Academy, Attention: Enrollment, P.O. Box 29189, Atlanta, GA 30359. Applications will not be accepted in person or at the school. Please download the appropriate application below.
ENROLLMENT FOR CURRENT YEAR (2013/14)
The GLOBE Academy has updated their policy for families who want to consider transferring to GLOBE this current school year. If you would like to transfer your child to 1st, 2nd or 3rd grade at GLOBE for the remainder of THIS school year, you may do so by February 28th, 2014. Any student who enrolls at GLOBE between now and February 28th will be eligible for re-enrollment for the 2014-2015 school year and all siblings will also be eligible to enroll for the 2014-2015 school year.
For this school year (2013-2014) We have a handful of spots available in 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades. Unfortunately Kindergarten is full. Interested families will need to fill out the below application and return to GLOBE with all supporting documentation by February 28th. You can hand deliver your applications for this school year to the front office at GLOBE anytime during school hours (8:00 am- 3:00 pm). At that time you will also have a chance to fill out your re-enrollment form, and sibling enrollment form (if applicable) for the 2014-15 school year.
Applications will be taken on a first come, first served basis for each grade (until February 28th).
Please note that since GLOBE has a differentiated learning model, teachers will be able to acclimate the children, even starting mid-year. We have had multiple children already join the school since January, who have acclimated well to the environment and the classes.
RE-ENROLLMENT FOR CURRENT STUDENTS & SIBLING APPLICATIONS
Re-enrollment for current students, and enrollment for siblings of current students is available January 13 – February 4, 2014 (NOTE: This deadline has been extended for an additional 3 business days to accommodate the unexpected School Closing.). All returning student and sibling applications must be postmarked by February 4, 2014 or hand delivered to The GLOBE administrative offices.
