Non-Resident Admission

 The Satsuma City School System is now accepting non-resident student applications for the 2017-2018 school year. 

The Satsuma City School Board allows non-resident students to attend school in the Satsuma City School System when there is space available, the student meets academic, behavioral, and attendance criteria, and the student submits a complete application to attend a Satsuma City School.  All submitted applications will be screened, but may not be accepted for either principal interview or accepted for enrollment. Submission of an application and accompanying documentation in no way guarantees acceptance into the Satsuma City School System.

 The Application

Interested students may submit a completed application by fax, email, or hard copy to:

                        Satsuma City School System

                        Attn: Non-Resident Student Application

                        P.O. Box 939

                        Satsuma, AL  36572

                        FAX: 251-380-8201

                        Email: studentapplications@satsumaschools.com

Interested students may also hand deliver a completed hard copy application to the Satsuma City School Board of Education, located at 220 Baker Road, Satsuma, AL 36572.

 Interested students, except for incoming kindergarten students, must also have official education records from their current school submitted directly by that school.  Education records must include a copy of the current report card, transcript, discipline, and attendance records.

 Please note:  no application will be considered complete until all educational records from the student’s current school have been received directly from that school.  

 The Review

The principal at each school will screen applications and issue letters either declining the application or inviting the applying student to an interview with the principal. Interviews will be scheduled after submission of the application.  In addition to the requirements of the Non-Resident Student Policy, the principals will also consider the size of the class in the grade level to which the student is making application as a part of the screening process.

 The Interview

Student applicants meeting the Non-Resident Student requirements in those grade levels having room for additional students must attend a scheduled interview with the principal of the school containing that grade level. No student applicant will be accepted without a custodial parent/guardian attending the scheduled interview.  Student applicants may be expected to take a performance test based on the school grade just completed.

 The Acceptance Letter 

Each student applicant interviewed will be issued a letter either declining or accepting the student’s application for enrollment as a Non-Resident Student no later than Thursday, June 15, 2017.

Continuing Enrollment as a Non-Resident Student


All Non-Resident Students will be evaluated at the end of each semester.  Those not meeting the requirements of the policy will be withdrawn from the Satsuma City School System.


 At the end of each school year, all Non-Resident Students will be evaluated and issued a letter from the principal notifying the student of either withdrawal from the system or continuing enrollment.  The letter of continuing enrollment will contain the deadline date for payment of tuition. Students qualifying for tuition waiver will also be notified in this letter. Please note that failure to pay tuition in full by the deadline date will result in the withdrawal of the student.


All Non-Resident Students completing Grade 6 at Robert E. Lee Elementary who receive a letter of continuing enrollment will also be expected to attend a meeting with the Satsuma High School principal prior to registration.  A custodial parent/guardian must accompany the student to this meeting.  No student will be allowed to register as a Non-Resident Student without a custodial parent/guardian attending this meeting.
