Yes. For the 2024 – 2025 lottery, students who are siblings, students of staff or board members receive preference. Atlanta Unbound Academy also maintains a weighted lottery. This weight is explained below:
AUA will implement a weighted lottery. An increased chance of admission will be provided to the following subsets of educationally disadvantaged students with each subset defined by the State Board in accordance with federal guidelines and regulations;
To facilitate the weighted lottery, applicants may indicate their status on the admissions application and the school verifies this status during registration. The school will make a good faith effort to confirm a child’s status prior to the lottery. The weight shall be calculated annually as 4:1. This means if a student qualifies for any of the above 5 categories, that child receives 4 chances in the school’s lottery.
Per the school’s charter contract:
The charter school shall have a weighted lottery.
The lottery is Tuesday, February 20, 2024 at 10:00am at Atlanta Unbound Academy. We are located at 1025 McDonough Blvd SE Atlanta, GA 30316. Our lottery is not open to the public, however the results will be available immediately (waitlist results as well).
