    NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION 

    New student registration includes all incoming Kindergarten (5k) students, students enrolling in an Aiken County school for the first time, and students who were not enrolled in an Aiken County school during the previous school year. New student registration for the current school year (2023-24) is ongoing; please ensure you are using the appropriate link for the year in which you are registering.

    New student registration for the 2024-25 school year is now open.

    We are so excited to welcome your child to Aiken County Public Schools and we look forward to making the registration process and your child’s transition to our public schools as simple as possible! Please access the appropriate link listed below.

    Aiken County Public Schools will accept handwritten transcripts before the official transcripts arrive to ensure students are enrolled quickly. We strive to make the registration process as easy as possible for all families, especially those with unique relocation needs such as those relocating to our county for military service. We honor the Interstate Compact on Educational Opportunities for Military Children.    

    Parents/guardians will need an active email address in order to register new students. Various companies provide email accounts at no cost.

    Please visit our School Zone Locator to determine the school your child will attend based on the home address entered. 

    What You Will Need to Register Your Student 

    Prior to beginning the registration and application process, you will need to collect a few documents, including:

    • Your child’s birth Certificate
    • Immunization Record
    • Proof of Residency Documents (2)
    • You may choose to scan the document (.doc or .pdf) or upload an image (photograph in .jpg or .png format) of the required documents.
    • Please note that a copy of your child’s Birth Certificate and Immunization record must also be submitted in person to your child’s school prior to the first day.

    You will be asked to upload two proof of residency documents. Acceptable documents include the following:

    • Mortgage contract or statement
    • SC Driver's License or ID Card
    • Property Tax bill or Receipt
    • Utility Bill (electric, water or gas)
    • Cable/satellite, Internet or telephone bill
    • Homeowners/renters Insurance policy
    • Notarized Letter from Landlord

      You will also be asked to enter the name of your child’s pediatrician and dentist, along with their telephone numbers and addresses. Family members and friends to call on in an emergency will also be requested. You may enter up to five emergency contacts.

    Emergency Contacts/Bus Escorts

    While in our District, learning is certainly important, however, the safety of your children is our highest priority. Any student riding the bus in grades PK-Grade 2 must be met by an adult after school at the bus stop. Students grade 2 and lower will not be left at a bus stop alone. An exception to this rule can be made if a younger student will be riding a bus and getting off at the bus stop with an older sibling (grade 3 or higher). You will be asked to identify up to five individuals who may meet your child at the bus. You will need to list their names and a contact telephone number for each.

    FAQs

    Why do families need an e-mail address to create their account?

    E-mail will be the method for all major communications between Aiken County PowerSchool Registration and your family.  These communications include the new account creation e-mail and the submission confirmation e-mail.

    Why do families need to create an Aiken County PowerSchool Registration account?

    Having families store their child’s and family’s information within a secure account ensures the security of that information. In addition, as your child progresses to subsequent grades in our District, you’ll create a PowerSchool Parent Portal account that will allow you to view transportation information, attendance and other pertinent information about your child’s education.

    When I click on the registration link, what information appears?

    For new student registration, you will click on “Create Account” to begin the registration process.

    What if I forget my password?

    To retrieve a password online, the family can select the “Forgot Password” link on the Account Sign In screen.  From there, you will enter the account’s associated e-mail address and be able to either recover a temporary password sent to your e-mail address, or you may choose to answer the security questions online and immediately enter a new password.

    Whom should I contact if I need help in setting up the registration account?

    Please contact your zoned school if you should have any questions or need support in registering your child.
