Your child’s education is extremely important, and we’re honored you’re considering Wesley International Academy. We are a unique and innovative K-8 charter school, serving students of diverse backgrounds in Atlanta.
Who Can Attend?
Wesley International Academy is a free, public charter school open to any student (K-8) living within the Atlanta Public School zone. There are no primary and secondary zones. Current enrollment demand exceeds capacity, and attendance is based on a lottery each spring. Charter schools, as well as public schools, must comply with state and federal regulations, and our admissions are open to students in accordance with the school’s charter agreement.
New applicants will be enrolled subject to the following priorities:
- Siblings of students who attended Wesley International Academy during the previous school year.
- The children of teachers, staff, and board members at Wesley International Academy not falling under the criteria above, including children of teachers and staff who live outside of the City of Atlanta.
- Students residing within the Atlanta Public School Zone. Click on the following link to verify whether your address is in the APS attendance zone: https://maps.apsk12.org/
Most grades do have a waitlist each year. As openings become available, we notify our waitlisted students. We do not maintain a waiting list from previous school years. All parents must re-submit an application for the following school year during that year’s application period.
