Welcome to Lancaster City Schools - The Place To Be

Lancaster City Schools operates one high school, two junior high schools and five elementary schools. We are pleased to introduce Registration Gateway, an online student registration program. Please click on this link to start your pre-registration (grades K-12): Registration Gateway

Please don't forget to schedule your appointment at the end of the program.

If you would rather complete your registration on paper copies, feel free to stop by your neighborhood school during regular hours and register in the school office.

For your convenience, you may print out the registration forms below (only the Parent or Legal Guardian can register the student).

We do not offer central registration (except during summer break - see notes below).

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"
