Enrolling at Oakwood Digital

There are a few things to keep in mind and simple steps to follow if you think Oakwood Digital might be the right academic setting for you.  Although our setting allows us to accommodate only 150 students at a time, openings often occur throughout the semester, so we can enroll new students any time space becomes available.  The school keeps a waiting list of interested students who are called to fill these openings as they occur.  Students starting at the beginning of a new semester are graded and awarded credit based on the work they do at Oakwood. Transfer students coming in the middle of a semester  are enrolled in the same courses they were in at their previous school when those courses are offered at Oakwood.  Grades are then calculated by combining transfer grades with the work completed at Oakwood.  The flexibility of Oakwood's digital format allows the school to meet the special needs of students who come here from schools with varied types of schedules (traditional, block, A/B, etc.).  There are also opportunities for students who have not been enrolled in school previously during a semester to transfer in and earn academic credit.  View the Enrollment Credit Chart.


Who can apply to Oakwood?

To enroll at Oakwood, a student:

  • Must be a Cobb County resident.

  • Must be eligible to attend school in the Cobb County School District.

  • Must be at least 16 years of age.

  • Must have previously earned a minimum of 8 credits.

  • Must have reliable transportation to and from Oakwood each day.


What are some other facts about the application process?

  • Admission will be granted to students who are closest to meeting graduation requirements with priority placement going to juniors and seniors.

  • Applications remain on file for one semester from the date of submission.

  • Students will be notified when space is available.

  • After initial interview, a student’s file will be reviewed by the admissions committee and applicant will be notified of his/her acceptance status.  A student is not guaranteed admission merely because he or she submits an application or has an interview.


If a prospective student meets the above criteria, there is a simple, 4-step process to complete in order to be enrolled. 

1. Students submit an Application for Admission (Click Here)

2. The student's application is placed on a waiting list based on credits earned.

3. Students are called as space becomes available and are scheduled for an interview.

4. Following the interview, a student’s file will be reviewed by the admissions committee and applicant will be notified of his/her acceptance status.

Please note that students who are currently receiving special education services at their home high school must have an IEP committee meeting to discuss a change in placement prior to the student's enrollment at Oakwood.  If the committee feels that Oakwood is an appropriate academic setting, the IEP would be amended to reflect the instructional model that is unique to Oakwood Digital Academy.
