High School Information for 8th grade families
High school options for students:
- You may attend your zoned public high school – this is based on your address where you live – ANCS does NOT have a feeder high school.
- You may apply to private school – those visits and applications usually begin in the fall and are due in January. They require recommendations from teachers, counselor and principal as well as transcripts. The information that is sent out in the fall will primarily be about private schools because of their earlier timelines.
- You may apply to a charter high school. Currently the charter high school options in Atlanta are: Atlanta Classical, Drew High School, Kipp Collegiate
- You may apply for an administrative transfer to another public high school other than the one you are zoned for. This process takes place in the spring (March and April) and spots are awarded via lottery. In recent years, MJHS and Midtown have not accepted any transfers.
