How to Enroll

    New student registration is by appointment only. Please make sure you have all of the following required documents prior to making a registration appointment. While we can fax a request for your child’s transcript from the previous school, this must be taken care of before your registration appointment. If you do not have all the required registration documents, your appointment will need to be rescheduled for a later date.

    3. Visit your child's base school to enroll. We recommend calling ahead to learn office hours.
    4. State law requires that every child entering public schools in N.C. for the first time receive a health assessment. The assessment must occur within 12 months prior to entering school. The medical provider, parent or guardian must provide a completed health assessment form to the school on or before the child's first day of attendance. Health assessment forms are also available at Wake County schools, area doctors' offices or at the Wake County Health Department.

     

    Assessments and Immunizations 

    Parents whose children do not have a regular physician can get health assessments and immunizations through the Wake County Health Department. First-time appointments should call (919) 250-3947.
     
    A parent or guardian has 30 calendar days from the first day of attendance to present the required proof of immunization and health assessment. At the end of the 30 day period, any child without a health assessment shall be prohibited from attending school until he or she has obtained the required assessment.
