School Tours for Prospective Families: KCSMA will be hosting school tours for prospective parents. Please click on the link to reserve a space at one of our upcoming tours in December.


Open Houses provide students and parents the opportunity to visit the school and meet our principals, various teachers, and staff. Additionally, Open House visitors can tour the facility and learn about our various after-school programs. This is an excellent time to have your questions answered and to learn more about the mission and philosophy of KCSMA. After attending an Open House, it is our intent that you have the information you need to determine if Kennesaw Charter Science and Math Academy is the right school for your family. Please mark your calendar for Saturday, January 27, 2018, at 10 a.m. for our upcoming Open House. More details will be released as we approach the date.


A student must reside within the Cobb County School District on a full-time basis or be the child of a full-time KCSMA employee or Board member to apply for admission to KCSMA. The address of residence is subject to verification via phone, U.S. mail, and home visits by the school administration. The student cannot reside within the Marietta City School District.

It is the custodial parent’s/guardian’s responsibility to ensure all information provided to KCSMA is accurate and true (i.e. Grade and Address).

For enrollment purposes, siblings are defined as children with a shared custodial parent/guardian and who share a common residence.

The address of a student accepted for admission to KCSMA will be determined based on the bona fide primary residence of the custodial parent/guardian. Custodial parent/guardian status requires legal verification.
