At The Habersham School we believe excellence in education begins when we share a common educational philosophy with families and cooperate both in goals and in methods. This is why we attempt to give prospective parents a full understanding of who we are, what we believe, and what we do. Our admissions process is designed to evaluate the whole child. We balance the needs of the student with the needs of the school and class to make sure we can serve the student well. We will consider each student’s academic potential, scholastic motivation, character, and extra-curricular interests.
Step 1: Get to Know Habersham
Familiarize yourself with the mission, core values, and educational philosophy of Habersham.
Step 2: Visit Us
We invite you to schedule a personal tour where we can answer your questions and invite you to visit classrooms.
Once an application has been submitted, testing and shadow days are administered by appointment through the Admissions Office.
Fees: $125 Application Fee, $140 for the ERB Independent School Entrance Exam (if needed)
Shadow days are designed to provide a regular school day for your student to get to know classmates and what life at Habersham would be like. Students will shadow in their current grade level.
Step 5: Parent Interview
After all application materials have been received and following testing, our Admissions Committee will review each student’s completed file. Students who qualify will be invited to schedule a Student/Parent Interview. Please note that interviews are scheduled by invitation only and are not guaranteed. Students applying for grades 7-12 will also be interviewed. Both parents should be familiar with Classical Christian Education. We recommend reading “Wisdom and Eloquence” by Littlejohn and Evans.
Step 6: Enrollment Decisions
After interviews have been completed, the Admissions Committee will render decisions.
First Round Admissions: February- March All new families applying by Feb. 15th will be notified of admissions decisions during the first week of March considering the admissions process has been completed. In cases where students are accepted but the class is full, students will be placed on a waiting list and will be notified when/if an opening becomes available.
Second Round Admissions: March-April All new families applying by March 15th will be notified of admissions decisions by the first week of April, considering the admissions process has been completed. Applications received after April 1st will be considered in the order in which they are received for any classes with openings. All others will be considered for the waiting list
Step 7: Confirmation & Payment
Upon acceptance, complete and submit the online enrollment packet along with the tuition deposit within 14 days of acceptance. The tuition deposit is a non-refundable payment applied to your tuition balance (the deposit counts towards tuition). It is not an additional fee. All future tuition payments are handled through the online FACTS Tuition Management system, therefore a FACTS account is required for enrollment. All instructions for the online enrollment packet and creating your FACTS account will be sent in your acceptance letter. Enrollment is finalized upon completion and submission of the online packet with tuition deposit.
