Welcome to Lancaster City Schools - Home of the Golden Gales

Lancaster City Schools operates one high school, two junior high schools and six elementary schools. Please register your child directly at your home school. We do not offer central registration (except during summer break - see notes below). If you have specific questions concerning school placement, please call 740-687-7300.

You will need to bring the following documents to register your child:

  • Child's birth certificate
  • Custody papers (if applicable)
  • Parent/Legal Guardian's ID
  • Two proofs of residency (phone/electric/utility bill, etc.) If you are residing with someone and don't have bills in your own name, please submit the form "Affidavit of Residency"

For your convenience, you may print out the registration forms below. Only the Parent or Legal Guardian can register the student. It has to be done in person. Please call if you have any questions.
