Out Of District Enrollment





Thank you for your interest in the Social Circle City School District. Applications for out-of-district attendance are screened based on each student’s prior academic history. This includes a review of report cards, attendance records, behavior and discipline records, test scores, as well as our ability to accommodate the student and to provide a high quality education. The application process for Social Circle Schools is very competitive. 

Non-resident students who are approved for attendance are not required to reapply but may be subject to annual review. The tuition, which is $3,384.00 per student for the 2023-2024 school year, varies annually. Students who live in Newton County are exempt from tuition payments. Tuition shall be paid at the Business Office of the Board of Education in one of the following manners: 

a. Pay the total amount in advance of matriculation, or
b. Pay at the beginning of each semester an amount equal to ½ of that assessed for the year. 

To help expedite the processing of your application, the following items MUST be submitted with your application for each child listed. Incomplete and/or late applications will automatically be denied. No Exceptions. 

  • Copy of the current report card and a copy of the report card from the previous year 

  • Copy of the student’s attendance records for the current school year 

  • Copy of the student’s behavior/discipline record 

  • Copy of the student’s most recent standardized test scores 

  • Copy of Individualized Education Program (IEP) if applicable 

We are accepting applications for the 2023-2024 school year. Applications will be accepted until the district has reached enrollment capacity. Completed applications are typically processed within four weeks of receipt and families will be notified via email.
