Student registration has begun

New student registration

Student registration has begun


It's that time of year again. Guardians who wish to register their students for the coming school year can begin doing so. 

New student registration for the district began yesterday and will continue until Sept. 2.

High school students can register at their neighborhood high schools from 8:30a.m. to 1:00p.m. On Sept. 6 and 7, high schools will also have registration hours after school from 3p.m. to 7p.m. Students must be present to select courses.

For Elementary and middle schoolers, registration hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 3p.m.

Keep in mind, students who need to register include: Those whose families are new to Philadelphia, children transferring from private, parochial and charter schools, kindergarteners who were not pre-registered this past spring and district students who moved to a new neighborhood over the summer.

In addition, the district is running a special registration program for new immigrant students at their district headquarters until Aug. 31. The program is also offered at the district’s Welcome and Enrollment Center, located at 2603 North 5th Street.

The services, which include on-site translation and interpretation, are available Monday through Friday from 8:30a. to 4:30 p.m., and at district HQ until 6:00p.m. on Mondays.

Among the required paperwork, parents are required to bring proof of the child's age, your ID and proof of your current address. For students entering the district for the first time, guardians should provide the child's most recent report card, proof of current immunization and your students' Individualized Education Plan, or IEP, if he or she has one.
