Lottery/Application Information

Thank you for your interest in FAST Charter School.  FAST is no longer accepting applications for the 2020-2021 school year.

All new students interested in attending FAST for the 2021-2022 school year are required to submit an application to our lottery.   The lottery for the 2021-2022 school year will open in January 2021.

As a reminder, all students must live within the Fulton County Schools district to attend FAST.  To verify your address is zoned for Fulton County Schools, click HERE.


Lottery Preference

After current FAST students have claimed a seat for a given school year, preference is given as follows:

  • Siblings of current FAST students
  • Children of current FAST Governing Board members and FAST employees

To ensure fair and equitable access to enrollment at FAST, the school will employ a family pull lottery process whereby one identifier will be assigned to a family.  The family will be pulled as a group and children will be placed in order into grades with the understanding that demand in each grade may be uneven.

A current student will be defined as a student enrolled and attending school prior to the lottery.  Sibling preference will not be employed during or after the lottery for entry in the school year for which the lottery was held.
