  • Can we only visit on Open House dates or can we have an individual tour?

  • Do you give scholarships?

    We do not give scholarships. We do, however, offer need-based financial aid. You may apply for financial aid online at http://sss.nais.org/. Please contact our office for more details.
  • May our student Shadow?

    We love to have students applying to Grades 2 – 12 shadow. Please call the Admission Office to schedule a shadow day. We will do their interview while they are on campus if the application for admission has been submitted.
  • What do you look for in a candidate?

    We look for motivated, average to superior, college bound students with no behavior or attendance problems. We do have a resource center to help children with mild learning differences but we are not set up for moderate to severe learning differences.
  • What is included in tuition?

    Our tuition costs include: lunch, textbooks up to 5th grade, and all registration fees.
  • What is the SSAT?

    The SSAT is the Secondary School Admission Test for students entering grades 6 – 12. It is what most of the Atlanta Independent schools use for admission testing. You must contact ssat.org to secure a test date.
  • When should we give the transcript request, teacher and principal evaluation forms to our school?

    You should give the forms to your current school anytime after the first of January.
  • Why do you have a September 1 birthday cut off for students entering PK and K?

    The September 1 cut off is “not written in stone”, however, our program is advanced and it is a benefit for the children to be older when entering Walker. Every child is an individual so we are happy to evaluate a child and determine if they are ready for our program even if their birthday comes after the September 1 cutoff.
