  • Step One*: Registration will begin at the Mercer building.  Please call 499-9568 to set up your initial appointment.
  • Step Two: Gather the documents you need for your registration appointment:
    • Proof of residency-a utility bill with your name pre-printed on it, or a copy of your lease or deed

    • Special Education or 504 Accommodation records (if relevant).
    • Custody Papers (if relevant)*
    • **PLEASE NOTE: Transcript must be to School Counseling office at least 1 day before Registration Appointment.
  • Step Three: Attend your appointment. The appointment will last approximately one hour to register and schedule your child. Please arrive 15 minutes early to fill out necessary paperwork.
  • Step Four: It will take 24-48 hours for the registration process to be completed.  Your child's new school counselor will contact you to set up an appointment to discuss prior credits earned and create your student's schedule.  On the first day of school, you child should bring a notebook and pen for their first day. They will start the day with a tour of the building, if they have not had one yet, and will be shown to each of their classes that first day.

* Your student will not be able to start school until ALL documentation in step 2 is submitted.
