Registration

We look forward to meeting new families! If you are new to the area, you can enroll your student(s) throughout the school year and summer months.  Please contact our registrar, Sabrena Capel, at 571-642-6300 or by email, slcapel@fcps.edu. She will schedule an appointment for registration.

You will need to have the following items for registration:

  • Proof of residency: A current, fully-executed lease (signed by both the landlord/management company and tenant) or deed/closing documents to the home is required. If you are sharing a residence, you must complete and have notarized two FCPS residency affidavit forms and provide the necessary documentation at registration. Please make sure you have all documentation completed before your appointment. Affidavit forms may be obtained at the school.    
  • School records: (an informal copy is acceptable). We will request official records from your child’s previous school after the registration is completed.
