How to Apply
The Attic Learning Community uses a web-based application hosted by Ravenna Solutions. Through Ravenna, you will be able to submit your application form, complete the remaining admissions steps, and track the status of your application online.
Learn about the Attic
Carefully read through the website, peruse our Recommended Reading List, attend an Open House event and tour, ask questions, and learn all you can about The Attic.
Tour the Attic
Touring the Attic is an essential part of our admissions process and is required prior to an offer of admission. Virtual tours are held monthly via Zoom. To sign up for a tour, please login or create an account through Ravenna (you do not need to submit an application form in order to register for a tour).
Submit an Admission Application Form
Submit a completed application form and payment of the application fee ($50) through Ravenna. You can expect a confirmation email when your application form is received.
You can track the progress of your application form as it is reviewed and processed by the Admissions & Enrollment Team through Ravenna.
Submit two Reference Forms
Submit two references from non-family members who have worked with your child in a group setting. Input your reference writer’s emails through Ravenna. They will receive an email link to a secure reference form. Once each reference writer has completed and submitted their form, the step will be marked complete.
Attend a Parent Interview
After you have completed your application form, you will be able to schedule a parent interview. This interview is conducted by the Admissions & Enrollment Team and includes all parents/guardians of the applicant (adults only at this meeting). During this meeting, we will discuss your application form and answer any questions you may have.
Your application is considered complete when your application form, application fee and two reference forms are received, and when parents/guardians have participated in a tour and interview of The Attic.
We observe rolling admissions, thus applications are accepted at any time during the year and processed as they are received. All eligible applicants are added to our current admissions pool and given full consideration when/if an opening occurs.
Fall Enrollment – Best to apply by mid-January
We strongly encourage that your application be received and completed no later than mid-January for consideration in our first admissions pool for the upcoming academic year. We continue to consider applications until all openings for the upcoming fall are filled – usually in the early spring.
If you are interested in mid-year enrollment, please let us know via email when you apply and note this on your application.
