Applying to Academe

Academe of the Oaks enrolls students who are interested in an active and dynamic learning environment. Students and their parents are encouraged to visit our campus and experience what makes Academe of the Oaks unique. We recommend you review our curriculum and then schedule a visit.

Application Process

The admissions process usually starts with an informal information session, conducted by phone or in person. Please contact the school to make arrangements. Next, prospective students and parents submit a completed application online. We also invite prospective students to visit the school for a day or part of a day. In addition to the Visiting Mornings, Academe of the Oaks invites all prospective parents and students to meet the Academe faculty, learn about our curriculum and exciting programs during two parent evenings. Finally, interviews are conducted with prospective students and parents, and each student takes our entrance/placement exam. Please note that we require an official transcript of previous academic work in addition to the completed application.

For the convenience of prospective students and families, we offer Visiting Mornings. During these visits, parents have the opportunity to tour the school, visit classes, and meet with the administration and faculty. Prospective students visit classes and meet current students. Please see the calendar for the upcoming dates.

Common Statement From The Atlanta Area Association Of Independent Schools (AAAIS)

We believe that families have the right to make enrollment choices among schools to which they have been accepted without undue influence or communication from those schools. For that reason it is the policy of AAAIS schools and their representatives to refrain from initiating contact or allowing campus visits of accepted students or their parents between the first date of the common acceptance period and the last day of decision. Families are encouraged, therefore, to attend Open Houses, complete campus visits, and participate in activities at schools in which they have interest in advance of the early April common acceptance.

Admissions Non-Discrimination Policy

Academe of the Oaks admits students, without regard to race, color, religion, sexual orientation, sex, gender, national or ethnic origin, disability, or genetic information, to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students of the School. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, sexual orientation, sex, national origin, disability, or genetic information, in the administration of its educational policies, admission policies, tuition assistance, athletic, and school-administered programs.
