Georgia’s Public School Choice law allows residents of the City of Atlanta to attend a public school outside of their zoned school if space is available. Those that live outside of the City of Atlanta may apply to attend an Atlanta Public School if space is available and with the payment of non-resident tuition. Atlanta Public Schools offers two types of transfers:

  1. General Administrative Transfers – permits a student to attend an out of zone school until the highest grade of the school. Approval is subject to space availability at the requested school.
  2. Georgia Special Needs Scholarship Transfers – permits eligible special education students to request a transfer to another APS school on the basis of special needs. Approval is subject to space availability at the requested school. Visit this page for detailed information: http://www.atlanta.k12.ga.us/Page/760

General Administrative Transfers and Georgia Special Needs Scholarship Transfers applications will be accepted at the Department of Student Relations, 130 Trinity Avenue, 2nd Floor, Atlanta, Georgia 30303 on the following dates and times:
