ATLAS welcomes students who demonstrate a commitment to the 5 C’s of ATLAS: that students show curiosity about their world, commitment to their work, creativity in their thinking, confidence in themselves, and compassion toward all they encounter.
The admissions process allows families, students, and the ATLAS Team to get to know one another. Families and students learn about ATLAS philosophy, culture, and curriculum. The ATLAS Team learns about students’ and families’ educational goals, preferences, and backgrounds.
Below, please find many ways you and your child can connect with us to learn more about ATLAS. We look forward to getting to know you.
