K4 students must be four years of age, K5 students must be five years of age, and grade 1 students must be six years of age by September 1 to enroll in the respective grade.
Landmark does facilitate rolling admissions for transfer students who are applying for grades where we may have availability. However, we recommend prospective applicants contact our Admissions Office, 770-692-6742, to verify there is availability prior to applying.

Landmark has a financial aid program to help families in need of tuition assistance. The application for admission and the application for financial aid are separate processes but should be completed simultaneously. Financial aid is need-based and may be applied for by completing an application with FAST Tuition which may be obtained by accessing this link.
Deadline for existing families is December 31, 2021. This is to ensure that there is time to review your financial aid application and determine if and how much financial aid will be awarded. We include financial aid on your re-enrollment contract.
New families will need to apply for aid in conjunction with applying for admission to Landmark Christian School. Your financial aid application will be reviewed and any aid award will be on your student contract when it is emailed to you. Please do not sign your contract if you have applied for financial aid and there is not an award included before reaching out to DeeDee Grindle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All financial aid at Landmark is awarded based on demonstrated financial need – there are no merit-based financial aid awards at Landmark. Along with the financial aid application, families must submit several documents, including 2020 Form 1040 (Include your 2021 Form 1040 for applications completed after February 28, 2022) along with supporting documentation including W-2’s and/or 1099’s. These documents should be uploaded to Financial Aid for Student Tuition (FAST) after completing the application. FAST charges an application fee of $48. FAST does not decide whether financial assistance will be given or how much to give; rather FAST provides a need-based financial aid analysis which includes a recommendation of what a family should reasonably contribute toward tuition. Results are reviewed by the Financial Aid Committee who make recommendations to the Head of School based on next year's budget.
Available aid goes first to current families in one of two categories: current financial aid families who have applied for and continue to qualify for aid and current families who have not previously required aid; but are experiencing financial hardships and now need assistance to remain at Landmark. After the financial aid needs of those current families have been met, we then offer aid to qualified new families once they have been accepted to the school through the regular admissions process.
Enrollment contracts are binding for the entire school year based on the amount of the contract at the time it is signed. Therefore, you should apply for financial aid BEFORE signing your contract. There may be some extenuating circumstances allowing a family to apply for aid after the fact. Those circumstances should be limited to life-changing events.
By law, funds raised through Georgia GOAL must be spent on financial aid for students who qualify for assistance based on the GOAL Scholarship Program guidelines. Click here for guidelines. Landmark requires all families to go through FAST to determine financial need. The Financial Aid Committee will review all applications and submit those who meet the GOAL guidelines directly to GOAL. GOAL will require the 2021 tax return for families to receive their scholarship for the 2022-2023 school year. Therefore, it is imperative that you complete your taxes as soon as possible. Funding for GOAL Scholarships are dependent upon the amount allocated to Landmark Christian School through state tax redirections.
The Georgia Special Needs Scholarship (GSNS) Program is a school choice program available for special needs students attending Georgia public schools who are served under an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Applicants to Landmark must meet the admission criteria of our school. The Learning Center will review the student’s IEP and must be able to meet the special needs of the student included therein for the student to be accepted to Landmark. It is the sole responsibility of the parent to apply for funding through Georgia’s Department of Education-GSNS department. In the event the parent does not receive the expected funding, the parent is required to fulfill the full tuition obligation to Landmark Christian School. Additional information can be obtained here.
