2022 - 2023  Virtual Lottery
Due to the ongoing COVID -19 pandemic, The Main Street Academy's Open Enrollment Lottery was held virtually, with no in-person attendance, on February 25, 2022 at 10:00 a.m. Prospective households who applied for admission to The Main Street Academy prior to the lottery received an email in early March for notification of acceptance or waitlist status. You may also check your admission status via your SchoolMint account. Contact TMSA's Data Manager, LaShonda Liptrot, for questions or concerns.
2022 - 2023 Intent to Return (Re-Enrollment) 

Re-Enrollment is the process by which The Main Street Academy (TMSA) indicates to current students and parents our desire to continue our relationship for the upcoming school year. In order for your child to continue their education with TMSA, each child must be "re-enrolled" through our online process. There are a limited number of seats available in each grade level, so we must confirm your child’s return during this Re-Enrollment period. If you do not confirm by the deadline, your child’s seat cannot be guaranteed. TMSA's re-enrollment process begins every January. 
The intent to return/re-enrollment window for existing TMSA families begins at midnight on Wednesday, January 5, 2022 and closes at 11:59 p.m. on Friday, January 28, 2022 (there are no exceptions). Upon completing the Intent to Return Form via SchoolMint, TMSA parents/guardians must submit two proofs of residency reflecting their name and current residential address. The first proof of residency may be a driver's license with current address, lease or mortgage statement, tax bill, or banking statement. The second proof of residency may be a current water or electric bill (not a gas bill). It's imperative for TMSA parents/guardians to adhere to the re-enrollment window to ensure their students' seats for the 2022 - 2023 academic school year. 
Important Reminder: TMSA parents and guardians if the status of your 2022 - 2023 Re-Enrollment Application is "in progress", please log in to SchoolMint to complete the application progress. 


TMSA parents and guardians, please complete and submit the application, inclusive of uploads, on a desktop or computer-based device, not a mobile device.
For Re-Enrollment address verification, TWO documents, indicating residence in the attendance area must be provided.
Residence Requirement
In February 2015, the Fulton County Schools (FCS) district revised its School Admission Policy (SAP) for Residence Verification. The policy no longer requires families to complete an Affidavit of Residence for every year of student enrollment. Instead, two proofs of residence (from the district's approved list below) must be provided upon re-enrollment into The Main Street Academy.
One current water or electric bill (per Fulton County Schools, TMSA cannot accept gas bills) AND one residence document from the list below. Both documents must contain the parent or guardian's name and current address:
    • Current state drivers' license/ID with current 
    • Copy of home mortgage payment
    • Lease/renters agreement
    • Current bank statement (must be within the last 30 days)
    • Copy of Section 8/HUD housing contract
    • Copy of home contract
    • Homeowner's/renter's insurance card
    • Current paycheck stub (must be within the last 30 days)
    • Current HOA bill/statement (must be within the last 30 days)
If you have any questions or concerns about The Main Street Academy's admissions process please LaShonda Liptrot, TMSA Data Manager. 
It's very important for all existing TMSA parents and guardians to update their contact information, specifically the current phone number and email address, in the Infinite Campus portal. Any changes in residency must be shared with TMSA's Data Manager, LaShonda Liptrot, with two proofs of residency. If parents/guardians experience an issue accessing Infinite Campus, please email  LaShonda Liptrot to obtain the activation key.
