New Student Enrollment

General Information and Policies:

New Student Enrollment is for students who are (1) NEW to the Park City School District, or (2) former district students who are returning after having withdrawn from a district school.

If you live outside the U.S. and have questions about enrolling, please email our Registrar (see bottom of page) instead of calling on the phone.  Response times with email can often be quicker.

Residency and Guardianship Requirement:  Per state and district policy, to enroll at Park City High School, the student must be living within the school district boundaries with a parent or court-appointed legal guardian.  Documents proving custody and residency are required for enrollment.  Refer to the district’s Proof of Residency Policy and boundary map (printable or interactive).  PCHS is closed to new out-of-boundary students.

Foreign Exchange and International Students:  PCHS accepts a limited number of J1 Visa Exchange students each year.  Applications must be submitted to the District Office by April 30 for enrollment in the next school year.  For J1 Visa and F1 International Student Visa enrollments, contact Dena Housel at the District Office (435-645-5600).

Not Eligible to Enroll:  Persons cannot enroll if they (1) have earned a secondary school diploma or completion certificate from any country, (2) have already completed 12th grade, or (3) turn 18 years old before September 2, unless they have just completed 11th grade and are on track to promote to 12th grade.  Contact the district’s Adult Education office (435-615-0209) for diploma, GED, and English Language Learner options for adults.  (UT Admin Rule R277-419)

Tours and Shadowing:  For the safety and security of our students and to minimize distractions, we don’t offer tours or shadowing.  Our School Profile and the PCHS and District websites are full of information about our academics, course offerings, extracurricular activities, counseling department, student handbook, policies, and more.  On their first day of school, new students will be paired up with a Hope Squad student who will provide a school tour and information.

New Student Pre-Enrollment for 2020-21 (NEXT school year):

We will be pre-enrolling and registering new students for the 2020-21 school year during the month of May.  The pre-enrollment process will NOT be same as below (you will NOT register online), but the same documents are required (proof of residency, guardianship, birth certificate, immunizations, and transcript).  Detailed information and instructions will be posted here by May 4th.

STEP 2:  Provide the required enrollment documents to the Registrar.

After completing the online registration, bring the following required documents to the Registrar in the PCHS Counseling Office.  No appointment necessary, office hours are 7:15am to 3:00pm on school days.  Documents can also be faxed to 435-645-5658 or emailed to the Registrar (see contact info at the bottom of this page).

NOTE: Park City High School will NOT request previous school records until AFTER the student is enrolled. You must provide the required documents at the time of enrollment.

Proof of Residency – To enroll, the student must be living with a parent or legal guardian within the district boundaries.  Bring a completed Proof of Residency Form (en español) AND TWO (2) supporting proof documents.  See the district residency policy for more information.

Guardianship Papers – Per district policy, students must be living with their parent or a 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 (court documentation is required).  Notarized letters are not acceptable.  Foreign Exchange Student host parents must have District approval.

Birth Certificate – Bring a copy of the student’s full birth certificate (no wallet cards) for age, name, and parent verification.  We are required to enroll students under their full legal name.  Passports are ONLY acceptable for district-approved J1 foreign exchange students.

Immunization Record – Bring a copy of your child’s complete immunization record.  See the Immunizations page for Utah’s school immunization requirements—they may be different than the state you’re coming from.

High School Transcript – We need this BEFORE your meeting with the counselor.  Bring a copy of the student’s high school transcript (grades 9-12) for discussing class placements and transfer of credits.  Call your previous school to get a copy for yourself or have them fax/email it to us.  It does not need to be official.

School Withdrawal FormIf transferring during the school year, we require the student’s previous school withdrawal form showing the student’s grades at the time of withdrawal.  If you don’t have one, call your previous school to get a copy for yourself or have them fax/email it to us.

Health History Form – This form is required for all students, each year, whether he/she has medical concerns or not.  Please complete the Health History Form (en español) and submit it with your enrollment paperwork.

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.  Call your previous school to get a copy for yourself or have them fax/email a copy to us.

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 your student is currently enrolled in a local charter school (and you live within the district boundary), and you would like them to enroll in Park City High School for the 2019-2020 school year, you must notify the district in writing no later than June 30 of your intention to enroll.  After June 30, you must submit an Open Enrollment Form to the District Office before enrolling at the school.

STEP 3:  Registrar will set up your Counselor appointment.

AFTER the online registration is complete AND all required documents have been received (steps 1 and 2), the Registrar will schedule your appointment to meet with a Counselor to create your class schedule.

To prepare for your counselor appointment, review the PCHS Course Catalog to see our class offerings and to review our graduation requirements.  Class selection worksheets are also available to print out.

Park City High School will request official records from the student’s previous school AFTER the student is enrolled and has met with the counselor.  Please make sure we know to request IEP, 504, or ELL records.

I need to move during the school year, what is the best time to transfer?   If your moving date is flexible, our best advice is to complete the term at your previous school and earn those credits first, then transfer to PCHS as close to our beginning term dates as possible.  Rest assured, our counselors are here to help you through your school transition.
