    Whitefoord Early Learning Academy - Atlanta Public Schools

    APS offers a Georgia Lottery-funded Bright from the Start Pre-K program with three classrooms, making it the largest APS Pre-K site in the city. This program is available for Atlanta families through a lottery system in which applicants rank their preference of APS Pre-K sites. Once the lottery runs, applicants will be made aware of their placements. There is a waitlist for each site as needed.
