STEP 2: SUBMIT FORMS Once the application is submitted you will be assigned a checklist that includes forms required to complete the application process. As documents are received by the Admission Office the checklist will be automatically updated.
STEP 3: INTERVIEW AND TESTING Following the submitted application, applicants will be contacted to schedule a student and parent interview with the Director of Admissions as well as student testing. Attendance by both parents in the interview is strongly recommended.
STEP 4: NOTIFICATION First-round admission notifications will be posted to the applicant's portal on March 16 provided that the applicant met the application and document deadlines of February 10.

Private school admission processes vary. At Landmark, admission is based on a parent’s profession of Jesus Christ, a student’s academic and behavior history, letters of recommendation, shadow day and interview.
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.

Since the first graduating class of 1989, 100% of Landmark students have matriculated to numerous prestigious colleges and universities such as Harvard, MIT, Cornell, Vanderbilt, Stanford, Pepperdine, John's Hopkins, Georgia Tech, Emory; local and state colleges like Georgia, Auburn, North Carolina, and Florida State: and military academies - United States Military Academy at West Point, United States Coast Guard Academy, United States Naval Academy, United States Air Force, across the nation.

“We began at Landmark in 2011 with two children. Landmark is more than we expected. The 70 graduates in the 2019 class had almost $9.3 million in scholarships not including HOPE, GTEG, and Zell. There were 10 students who accepted athletic offers, two fine arts scholarships, a Coast Guard appointment, Presidential Scholars and more. This is not unique to this class but is repeated every year. Graduates commonly accepted at Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt, Georgia, Davidson, etc. Academics are solid and the spiritual component mirrors what we teach at home and church. The teachers and coaches love my children. Do your research. You get for what you pay! Landmark is worth the investment." Parent. Niche.com June 2019
The annual tuition at Landmark Christian School varies based on the grade level in which your child enrolls. Our 2020/2021 tuition ranges from $7,420 per year for partial day 4-year old kindergarten, to $19,500 per year for grades 10 through 12. New tuition rates will be announced in January 2020.
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.
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 2018 Form 1040 along with supporting documentation including W-2’s. These documents should be uploaded to Financial Aid for Student Tuition (FAST) after completing the application. 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 requires the 2019 tax return for families to receive their scholarship for the 2020-2021 school year. Therefore, it is imperative that you complete your taxes early in February 2020. The GOAL scholarship amount is capped at $10,387 per student. (Cap may increase but the amount has not yet been determined by the State of Georgia.)
For an additional fee above tuition, the Learning Center at Landmark provides additional resources beyond the classroom for students who need or want additional personalized support or tutoring. The program helps each student embrace individual talents and abilities, in an effort to achieve academic success within the classroom. For more information about the Learning Center or to discuss the services available, please call the Admission office 770.692.6742.
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.
