Registration: 2021-2022 School Year
Welcome to the Wake County Public School System! Here is how to enroll in our school district.
Kindergarten Registration 2021-2022
A child must be 5 years old on or before August 31st of the current school year to attend kindergarten. In accordance with state law, gifted children who are age 4 by April 16th, will also be considered for admission.
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.

*Step 3: Bring the enrollment materials to your base school
In order to finalize the registration process, school staff will review your submission and contact you with the next steps. Please wait for information from your child's base school regarding the completion of the enrollment process. The following documents need to be presented in person at the school in order to complete the registration process even if you have uploaded the document to the online registration:
- 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:
- Current water, gas, or electric bill in parent's name that is no more than 30 days old
- Current lease that does not expire before the 20-21 school year.
- Settlement statement (Offers to Purchase are NOT valid for enrollment at capped schools)
- A photo ID of the parent or legal custodian
- Your child's COMPLETED NC Health Assessment and immunization record
- Any custody documents
PLEASE NOTE: Information to obtain and submit proof of immunizations and NC Health Assessment
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 the 12 months prior to entering school. You or your medical provider must provide a completed NC Health Assessment Form to the school at the enrollment appointment and immunizations on or before the child's first day of attendance. Forms are also available at Wake County schools, area doctors' offices or at the Wake County Health Department.
*Once schools re-open, you will be asked to submit hard copies of all required documents to the school Data Manager. 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 with the Data Manager should this be necessary.
