2023 - 2024 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. 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 annual re-enrollment process begins every January. 

 

The Intent to Return/Re-Enrollment period for existing TMSA students begins at 12:00 a.m./midnight on Wednesday, January 4, 2023 and closes at 4:00 p.m. on Wednesday, January 25, 2023. 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. It's imperative for TMSA parents/guardians to adhere to the re-enrollment window to ensure their students' seats for the 2023 - 2024 academic school year. 

 

  

2023 - 2024  Open Enrollment

 

The Open Enrollment period for prospective TMSA students (K - 4 only) is January 27, 2023 - February 16, 2023. Prospective parents and guardians are required to create a SchoolMint account to complete the online application process. Please be sure to list the name and grade of the prospective student. Completing the online application and listing the student does not secure a seat.

January 27, 2023 – February 16, 2023.


Enrollment preferences are given based on our Charter Application and Georgia State Law, (if space is available) to:

    • A student whose parent or guardian is a member of TMSA's governing board or is a full-time teacher, professional or other TMSA employee

 

2023 - 2024  Virtual Lottery

 

The Main Street Academy's Open Enrollment Lottery will be held virtually, with no in-person attendance, at 10:00 a.m. on  Wednesday, February 22, 2023.  Prospective households who applied for admission to The Main Street Academy prior to the lottery will receive an email regarding acceptance or waitlist status. Please access your SchoolMint account to check the status of admission. Feel free to contact TMSA's Data Manager, LaShonda Liptrot, for questions or concerns.

 

If offered a seat:
To complete the enrollment process and secure your child's seat, prospective parents/guardians must submit the TMSA Enrollment Application and Policy Packet. Finalized acceptance and enrollment into The Main Street Academy is contingent upon verification of information submitted, including but not limited to the student being a resident of the Fulton County Schools district (not Atlanta Public Schools). 
 
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 enrollment into The Main Street Academy.
 

Proof of Residency

Proof Required: Persons enrolling a student to The Main Street Academy shall submit two proofs of residency from the Fulton County Schools system's approved list of verifiable residency documents: one from the approved utility list and one from the approved residency list, upon initial enrollment in Fulton County Schools and when there is any address change (see list below). TMSA will retain a copy of documents in the student’s permanent record folder.

 

Proof of Residency

TMSA cannot accept gas bills. 
 
 
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.
