Admission to The GLOBE Academy is through a random lottery

All students who reside in the DeKalb County School District are eligible to apply. Applicants for Kindergarten must be 5 years old on or before September 1, 2024. Applicants for first grade must be 6 years old on or before September 1, 2024, regardless of completing Kindergarten at a private school. 

Applicants can indicate their “economically disadvantaged” status on the admissions application and such status will be verified as part of the registration process, which shall include a sworn statement by the parent/guardian confirming accuracy. Failure to provide these documents will result in the student’s spot being forfeited and the student will be moved to the end of the waiting list. Check here to see if your family qualifies. 

All applicants will be notified by email immediately following the Lottery and results will be available on the Lotterease website.
