In Wake County, students are assigned to a base elementary, middle, and high school for their Wake County home address. (Your home address is also referred to as your domicile in school board policy 4150.) You will start by completing the online enrollment form as outlined below, then await instructions from your child’s base school about how to complete the enrollment process. Families who are not able to complete the online process should contact their base school’s data manager. A school representative will contact you by telephone to assist with completing the online enrollment process.
Step 1: Make Sure Athens Drive is your Base School
Find your base school using our address lookup tool. Your base school may have an enrollment cap. You will still register for your base school.

Step 3: Bring the enrollment materials to your base school
Once you’ve completed the form online, please wait for information from your child's base school regarding the completion of the enrollment process. To expedite your student’s enrollment, upload the following documents:
- A certified copy of your child's birth certificate. (Need a birth certificate? Parents of children born in Wake County may now order certified birth certificates on the Wake County Register of Deeds website.)
- Proof of your Wake County address (domicile), which must be one of the following:
- Current water, gas, or electric bill in parent's name that is no more than 30 days old,
- Newly signed lease that is no more than 60 days old,
- Settlement Statement or
- Offer to Purchase agreement, in limited circumstances.
- A photo ID of the parent
- Your child's immunization record
- Any custody documents
Step 4: Obtain and submit proof of immunizations and NC Health Assessment
State law requires every child entering public schools in North Carolina for the first time to receive a health assessment. The assessment must occur within 12 months prior to entering school. Your medical provider should provide a completed NC Health Assessment Form to the school on or before the child's first day of attendance. NC Health Assessment Forms are also available at Wake County schools, area doctors' offices or at the Wake County Health Department.
State law requires these vaccinations before a student enters kindergarten and 7th grade.
New requirement: State law now requires all rising 12th graders to get a meningococcal vaccine booster before starting 12th grade. Parents will need to provide a copy of their child’s immunization record showing proof of the meningococcal vaccine before the first day of school in August 2021.
Please contact our Registrar, Patrice Sidney, with any enrollment questions or concerns. Her information can be found in the Student Services Directory.
