In order to attend YHALE for the 2020 – 2021 academic year, students must live in the state of Georgia.
To apply, you will need to complete an application during the application period in the beginning of 2020. An electronic application is available on the Home page of the school website at or www.yhale.org. You may also complete a paper application at one of YHALE's Open House events or request an application at and email it back.
Applications are due by May 8, 2020. Applications that are started by 11:59 pm on the deadline date will have a 3 hour grace period to allow for incomplete applications to be completed and submitted. If the number of applications received is at or below capacity numbers by the application deadline date, admission offers and enrollment forms will be sent to families of qualifying students.
With respect to enrollment for the school's very first year of operation, preference will be given to children of faculty and board members as there will be no currently enrolled students.
After the initial year of operation, preference for seats within kindergarten will be given, in order, to the following categories of students:
1. Students who complete Pre-K at the YHALE Preschool
2. Children of Full-Time Staff Members and Board Members
3. Siblings of Returning Enrolled Students
After the initial year of operation, preference for seats within all other grades will be given, in order, to the following categories of students:
1. Returning Currently Enrolled Resident Students
2. Children of Faculty and Board Members
3. Siblings of Returning Enrolled Resident Students
4. New Resident Applicant
Thus, returning currently enrolled students (Priority 1) will fill seats first. Once all returning students have been placed, Priority 2 applicants will be placed in available seats. Then Priority 3 applicants will fill available seats followed by Priority 4. If there are more applicants in a given Priority level than there are seats available, then those applicants, as well as all other lower priority level applicants, will be place in the lottery and seated based on their category priority and order in the lottery, as described in our Wait List procedure below.
A public Lottery will be held by the school between within a month following the application deadline if needed.
(This date may change if the school chooses to use Lotterease to administer the lottery.)
