Children must be six years old on or before August 31, 2014 to be enrolled in first grade for the 2014-2015 school year, unless they have, or will have, successfully completed Kindergarten, and written confirmation is provided from the Kindergarten program.

The following two options are available for you to register your child for the 2014-2015 school year. This process does NOT include registration for a charter / cyber or private school.
 
Option 1: A new online enrollment process will begin on March 3rd. Information about the process and how to access will be available on the Registration website at http://www.scasd.org//site/Default.aspx?PageID=20484. The Registration Office will not be able to accept in-person registrations until the dates mentioned above.

Option 2: Registration at the elementary schools at the times and dates listed above.   
 
Starting May 5, registration will continue at the District's Student Registration Office, located in Room 119 of the Fairmount Building, 411 S. Fraser St., from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM. Room 119 is most easily accessed using the entrance along the Fraser Street side of the building, and is marked by a signboard along the sidewalk.

Documents Required for Registration
1. Proof of birth date (birth certificate or passport). We must see the original document. Photocopies will not be accepted. Registration will not be accepted without proof of birth date.

2. Guardianship & Custody Orders. Persons with legal guardianship or legal custody of a child must bring copies of the document(s) granting the guardianship or custody.

3. Proof of residency in the State College Area School District (deed, lease, or current utility bill for place of residence)

Physical Exam
Pennsylvania School Health Law requires a physical exam for all Kindergarten students.
The exam is not required for registration. In the State College Area School District, the exam must be done no more than 12 months prior to the start of school and may be done during the school year. The exam can be given by your family physician or provided by the District at no cost. Additional information will be provided at registration.
