    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.

    Information for international students is at the bottom of this page.

    Families who are not able to complete the online process should contact our data manager, Mrs. Pearl, rpearl@wcpss.net. A school representative will contact you by telephone to assist with completing the online enrollment process.

    Step 1: Find your base school

    In Wake County, students are assigned to a base elementary, middle, and high school for their home address. Find your base school using our address look-up tool. Your base school may have an enrollment cap. You will still register for your base school. Learn more about how an enrollment cap might affect you.

     

    Step 2: Enroll online

    Enroll for 2021-22 (next school year) | Iniciar una solicitud en español para 2021-22

    Have questions? We encourage you to connect with us through our PowerSchool Community by web or chat for immediate access to our support experts. You can also call us on PowerSchool Enrollment (InfoSnap) Support Line, toll free at (866) 434-6276 or email us at support@registration.com.

     

    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: 

    1. 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.)
    2. Proof of your Wake County address, which must be one of the following:
    3. A photo ID of the parent
    4. Your child's immunization record
    5. Any custody documents

    Once schools re-open, you will be asked to submit hard copies of all required documents at your child’s school. Prior to schools re-opening, some parents may be required to bring documents in person, using safe distancing guidelines. Families will be contacted to schedule an appointment should this be necessary.

    Once the school completes the enrollment and provides you with a Powerschool ID number, you can elect to enroll only in the Virtual Academy. 

     

    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 N.C. Health Assessment Form to the school on or before the child's first day of attendance. N.C. 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.

     

    Required documents to enroll your child

    • Proof of your Wake County address (current water, gas, or electric bill in parent's name, newly signed lease, or offer to purchase agreement).
    • Photo ID of parent or guardian
    • Your child's immunization record (if available)
    • Academic records from previous schools (if available)
