2021-2022 New Student RegistrationOur Kindergarten (must be 5 by September 1st, 2021) and new students must live within the Bolton Academy zone to register at Bolton Academy. You can see if you currently live in the Bolton Academy zone by entering your home address HERE or click HERE to see the most recent zone map.All K-5th grade students who are new to Atlanta Public Schools will register online at home. The entire process should take about 35-40 minutes. It will go faster if you have images of all of your documents ready to go.
