Interested in Enrollment?

 Our enrollment process begins with a tour.

Still have questions?

Here are the mostly commonly asked questions:

How often are tours offered?

We hold tours each week at both locations. Sign up for an available tour here. Tours typically last 45 minutes to 1 hour. 

SoulShine Decatur (525 W Howard Ave, Decatur, 30030) tours are held weekly on Tuesdays at 9:00am.

What if I can't make the standard tour time?

You must register for a tour to attend. If the day/time does not work for your family, we will accommodate individual tours. Please use this form to schedule a specific time that will work within your schedule.

Request individual tour here.

How do I enroll my child?

Enrollment changes throughout the year and spots become available all year long. The best process to receive a slot is to be placed on the wait list. Unfortunately, we cannot predict the exact length of time you’ll be on the list or when an opening will become available. We do the very best we can to enroll your child as close to your desired start date as possible; however, this is not guaranteed.

To be added to the wait list, we require the Personal Record Form along with a non-refundable $100 registration fee. SoulShine collects an annual registration fee for all enrolled students and the registration fee collected to be added to the wait list will be applied to the annual registration fee for the year your child enrolls.

What forms do I need?

Forms can be downloaded based on your enrollment interest, Part Time or Full Time:
