Selective Studies at Johns Creek

Students with an Educational Psychological Evaluation and a diagnosed condition that negatively interferes with learning (such as a Learning Disability or ADHD) may qualify for classroom and/or testing accommodations. Accommodations are designed to support students so they may demonstrate their learning and are based on testing results and recommendations in the diagnostic report. Permission from the Selective Studies Director and High School Principal must be obtained prior to registering for Selective Studies Accommodations. You can contact the Selective Studies Director, Cindy Chadwick, directly at 770.279.3938 or
