Applying to The Walker School

General Information

The Walker School admits motivated, average to superior, college bound students with no conduct or absentee problems. The admission process identifies students who demonstrate motivation and the ability to fulfill The Walker School's academic requirements. In reviewing applications, the Admission Committee considers academic performance, standardized test results, teacher evaluation, individual characteristics and talents. 

For your convenience, our admission process has been moved online and is hosted by Ravenna Solutions, a user-friendly, accessible program that will take you from inquiry to a complete admission file.  We appreciate your applying for admission any time from October 1, 2016 through February 16, 2017. Throughout the admission process, you will have the opportunity to engage with our admission team, our administration and talented faculty, our students and our parent body. Our hope is to provide you with a multitude of perspectives to help you develop a deeper understanding of the Walker community.

Once you have created an account, you will see The Walker School listed in the directory of schools in the Atlanta area. After selecting Walker you will have the option to "Explore", register for an event or apply for admission. We appreciate your interest in The Walker School and we look forward to seeing you soon!
