It’s open house time again! Many of Atlanta’s private school’s admissions processes are in full swing and there is a busy schedule of open houses, information sessions, and other opportunities to visit the campuses and get to know the schools. I’ve listed the upcoming open house dates here but have linked to the school’s schedule pages for many more details on their admissions timeline.
In last year’s post, I wrote about how competitive the process can be and how important it is to jump into the school’s timelines in order to secure a spot in your top choice. Getting into the open houses will give you a lot of insight into the school’s culture and really help determine your priorities when it comes to applications and admissions.

Here’s an update on a previous post about off-cycle admissions to private schools.
The family that I’m working with on their relocation to Atlanta was hopeful to get into the Atlanta private school of their choice. Well, the one they were focusing on thought they were doing them a favor and put the one child on a “wait list” and for the other child, they flat out didn’t have openings.
The educational consultant that was recommended to me – Lida Greist of Griest & Williams Educational Consultants – turned out to be very helpful. My client had some contacts at Holy Innocents and Lida did as well.
Happily, both children will be attending Holy Innocents’ Episcopal School in Sandy Springs in a few weeks.
The moving trucks are arriving this week for their relocation to Atlanta and they’ll have a week to get settled before they start a whole new life here.
I have found them a rental home here in Vinings until their house sells and then we’ll be searching their perfect home to buy in Atlanta.
So glad it’s all working out for them.
