Registration for 2018-2019 School Year!


Are you new to the Rockford Public Schools?  Are you planning to switch from private schools back to the public school system?  You may Pre-register for the 2018-2019 school year.  Here are the steps you need to take:

1.  Bring 2 proofs of address (within the last 30 days) and your student's birth certificate to our main office during regular school hours.  You will need to fill out lots of paperwork.  You can either fill it out here, or take it home to complete and bring it back.

2.  Choosing Courses:

  •  If your student is entering grades 10-12 for 2018-2019, your student will need to select a Career and College Academy.  This link outlines the Academy and Pathway options.  All students must choose ONE. Handout for Academy and Pathway Selection.doc  You will need to make an appointment with the desired Academy Counselor to make course selections.  At the time of your appointment (or before) it will be important to have a transcript of completed high school courses.
  • If your student is entering grade 9, you will need to make an appointment with a Freshman Academy Counselor to do course selections.  Any current report cards of courses taken may be helpful in making the best choices.  
  • We will also have designated tour dates set in Spring semester for interested students.
