Enroll at MCPS

Welcome to Montgomery County Public Schools VA!

We are excited to have you join the MCPS family. 


The Online Registration process should be completed for all new PK-12 students. You should only register your PK child if you have already applied for PK and received a PK placement letter. 
If you are ready to register, please scroll down to the registration steps. If you have not yet applied for PK, please visit MCPS Preschool.
Do not use new student registration if your child is currently enrolled (K-12) in Montgomery County Public Schools.

Parents who wish to use only printed forms, instead of electronic submission, may contact the child's school for printed forms. 

Questions about enrollment should be directed to the child's school. For additional questions, call 540-382-5100 x1041.

Please follow these four easy steps for PK-12 enrollment:

Step 1 - Determine Your Attendance Zone

All new PK-12 students should be registered for the school in their attendance zone. The student's address determines the school they will attend. Look up attendance zone by visiting our online tool or call 540-382-5151.

Step 2 - Complete Online Registration

Click on the link below, create an account, log in and complete the online portion PK-12 Registration.

Once you are enrolled in PowerSchool Parent/Student Portal, it is time to complete your child’s Health Information Registration in SchoolCare, which is the confidential electronic health records system used by Montgomery County Public School Nurses. 

Instructions for completing the SchoolCare Health Information Registration:

  • Log into your PowerSchool Parent account. (If you do not have or do not remember your log-in information, please contact the main office at your child’s school.)
  • SchoolCare is listed on the left-hand side of the screen, under Applications.
  • Click on “Register for ___ Grade” (your child’s grade for the current school year). 
  • Complete the Health Information and click Submit. 
    **NOTE - this registration also allows you to approve any stock over-the-counter medicines you wish the nurse to be able to administer to your child as needed in school. 
  • Thank you for completing this important health information for your child. It will help our nurses to provide the best possible care for your child.

The following forms can be printed at home or obtained at your child's school. Complete the Health Forms and return them to your child's school during Step 4 of the enrollment process.
