Families must complete the 2024-2025 Online Registration to begin the enrollment process. The Online Registration (OLR) will be available beginning January 3, 2024 for Pre-K - 12th grade students.  Enrollment Appointments are no longer required, but are available as an option.  The Online Registration applications are processed in the order they are received, provided all necessary documentation is uploaded to the application.  Please take time to thoroughly review the necessary documents to ensure that your application is not delayed in processing. 


When completing the Online Registration, please be careful to select the correct year and registration type for which you are enrolling:

24-25 Enrollment for next school year into Columbus City Schools

School Choice Lottery Only - enrolling into the database so that a Parent Portal can be activated to submit a lottery application.  Will not be enrolled into Columbus City Schools unless a lottery offer is made and accepted.    The student will need to be enrolled elsewhere for the 24-25 school year if an offer is not made and accepted by the first day of school.

  • Families planning to submit a lottery application must have the Online Registration submitted with all necessary documents by February 22nd for Middle/High School and by March 22nd for Elementary School.  This will ensure that you have the Parent Portal activation code by the lottery deadline.
