Application Fee

A non-refundable application fee of $50 is required for domestic students.


Transcripts and Standardized Test Scores

School records must include a transcript which covers at least two years of an applicant's school career including current academic grades. The records should also include the discipline report, attendance records and standardized test scores.

If standardized test scores are not available, or more information is needed regarding a student's abilities, he or she may be required to take the SSAT (Secondary Schools Admission Test). Please contact the Admissions Office to determine if this test will be necessary.

For further information on the SSAT please visit their website at http://www.ssat.org/. We do offer the SSAT on campus. You can find up to date information on the SSAT website at http://www.ssat.org/test-center-search.

TFS will also accept ISEE (Independent School Entrance Examination) scores.


Student Visit

One of the most important components of the application process is a visit to Tallulah Falls School. Visiting campus is the best way to determine if TFS is the best option for your educational, social and personal goals. As you are preparing to submit an application, call the Admissions Office to schedule a visit. With advance notice, it is also possible to meet with faculty, students, coaches and/or administrators.


Admissions Committee

All applicants receive careful consideration by the Admissions Committee. The committee attempts to make fair decisions in every case, considering not only what our school can offer each applicant but also what contributions are possible by the applicant to the TFS community. When submitting an application to TFS, parents should understand the decision of the Admissions Committee is made with the best interest of each applicant as the primary concern. TFS admits qualified students without regard to race, color, or national and ethnic origin.
