New Student Enrollment
New Student Enrollment is for students who are NEW to the Park City School District or former students who are returning after having withdrawn from a district school.
**RESIDENCY AND GUARDIANSHIP REQUIREMENT**
To enroll at Park City High School, the student and their custodial parent or court-appointed legal guardian must provide documentation that they live within the Park City School District boundaries. See the district's Proof of Residency Policy for a list of acceptable proof of residency documents. To see the district boundary map, see the Boundaries page.
Foreign Exchange Students: The District accepts a limited number of J-1 Visa Foreign Exchange high school students each year; applications must be submitted in April. F-1 Student Visa enrollments must also begin at the District level. Contact Dena Housel at the District Office, 435-645-5600.
New Student Enrollment for the 2018-19 School Year (NEXT year):
We will be pre-enrolling new students for the 2018-19 school year during the month of May. You will NOT follow the enrollment procedure below to pre-enroll for next year—the process is different. Information and pre-enrollment packets will be posted here by May 1st.
New Student Enrollment for the 2017-18 School Year:
STEP 1 - Complete the online New Student Registration.
Complete the online registration FIRST. You can do this any time. If you don't have internet access at home, you can use a computer at the public library or at the school.

STEP 2 - Provide the required enrollment documents to the Registrar.
After completing the online registration, bring the following documents to the Registrar in the PCHS Counseling Center during normal office hours (no appointment necessary). Documents can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or faxed to 435-645-5658. You must provide all required documents at the time of enrollment. PCHS will not request records from the previous school until after the student is enrolled.
- Proof of Residency - To enroll, the student must be living with a parent or court-appointed legal guardian within the school district boundaries. Bring a completed Proof of Residency Form AND a supporting document showing proof of your primary residency in our boundaries. See the district policy for more information (en español).
- Guardianship Papers - Per district policy, students under 18 years of age must be living with a parent or legal guardian within the district's boundaries. If parents are divorced, bring court documents naming you as the primary- or joint-custodial parent. Children not living with a parent must have a court-appointed legal guardian. Notarized letters are unacceptable. Foreign Exchange Student host parents must have approval from the District.
- Birth Certificate - Bring a copy of the student's birth certificate for age, name, and parent verification. We are required to enroll students under their full legal name, as listed on the birth certificate or name-change court document. Passports are acceptable for Foreign Exchange Students ONLY.
- Immunization Record - Bring a copy of your child's complete immunization record. By law, a student will be refused enrollment if his/her immunizations are not up-to-date by Utah's school immunization requirements. Or, an Exemption may be filed with the Summit County Health Department.
- 5 DTP (4 doses if 4th dose was given on/after the 4th birthday)
- 1 Tdap (after 7 years of age)
- 4 Polio (3 doses if 3rd dose was given on/after the 4th birthday)
- 2 Measles/Mumps/Rubella (first does must be given on/after the 1st birthday)

- 3 Hepatitis B
- 1 Varicella (2 recommended) or history of chickenpox disease (parent must sign “pink card" verification)
- High School Transcript - Bring a copy of your student's high school transcript (grades 9-12). An unofficial copy is fine. It's required for discussing class placements and transfer of high school credits with your counselor.
- IEP or 504 Documentation - If your student was receiving special education services via an IEP or accommodations via a 504, providing us with a copy of those documents at the time of enrollment will greatly speed up the process.
- School Withdrawal Form - If your student is transferring during the school year, please provide the withdrawal form from the previous school showing the student's grades at the time of withdrawal.
- Parent Electronic Device Orientation - Parents must view this online orientation video before the student will receive their school laptop. Go to the Parent Electronic Device Orientation page for instructions (en español).
- Winter Sports School Transfers - Per district policy, if you live within the district boundary, and your student is currently enrolled in a local charter school, and you would like them to enroll in the Park City School District for the 2017-2018 school year, you must notify the district in writing no later than June 30, 2017 of your intention to enroll your student. After June 30, 2017, you must submit an Open Enrollment Form to the District Office.
IMPORTANT! The enrollment process will NOT move forward until the online registration is complete and all required documentation is received by the Registrar.
STEP 3 - Meet with your Counselor to create your class schedule.
After the Registrar has reviewed the required enrollment paperwork, she will make an appointment for you to meet with a Counselor. Appointments will NOT be scheduled until Steps 1 and 2 are complete! To prepare for your appointment, review the PCHS Course Catalog to see what classes we offer and to review the graduation requirements. Sophomore, Junior, and Senior class selection worksheets are available here.
STEP 4 - Complete the fee payment paperwork and pay fees.
Once your student's class schedule has been set, fees will be assessed. See the 2017-18 Fee Payment Form. All fee-related items (school/course fees, parking permits, fee waivers, PTSO membership, etc.) are handled through the Main Office of PCHS. Fees can also be paid online via eFunds for Schools. Fee waiver applications are available in the Main Office.
STEP 5 - We will request official records.
After the student is enrolled at PCHS, we will request official records from their previous school. Please make sure we know to request ELL, IEP, or 504 records.
