Application        ~          
Always print a copy of your completed form for your records.

  In selecting qualified Attic applicants, we look for:
  • The match of your family with The Attic
  • Our ability to meet your expectations and your child's needs.
  • The ability of your child/family to help us build and meet the needs of our existing community.

We observe rolling admissions and consider applications as they are received.  An application is complete when two references and the application fee are received, and the parents/guardians have toured the Attic.

The Attic Learning Community Non-Discrimination Policy

It is the policy of The Attic that all employees, volunteers and students have a right to work and study in an environment that asserts the personal worth and dignity of each individual.

In order to achieve this objective, The Attic will not tolerate any form of discrimination and/or harassment in its employment or education dealings.   Discrimination against, or harassment of, any employee, group of employees, student or group of students, on the basis of race, ancestry, place or origin, color, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed (religion), sex, sexual orientation, age, marital status, family status, mental or physical disability defeats this objective and will not be tolerated by The Attic.

This policy shall apply where there exists a negative work or study environment or potential adverse impact on an individual's work or study performance, or on their work or study environment.

Complaints of discrimination and/or sexual harassment should be reported directly to the Executive Director and will be investigated promptly and thoroughly.

The Attic is committed to preventing behavior which results in discrimination and/or harassment, as defined in this policy.
