Enrollment and Registration
In the fall of eighth grade, students begin the process of identifying which high school to attend. Some may attend their neighborhood high school; others apply to many of the district’s small high schools or specialized programs which accept students on a space available basis or through a competitive application process.
Students attending their neighborhood high school are automatically enrolled based on their address; they are registered in the spring.
Students applying to specialty programs are enrolled upon acceptance but must register according to instructions in their acceptance letters.
Parents are encouraged to learn about the wide variety of high school choices available throughout the district. Important enrollment information is available from the Sacramento City Unified School District (SCUSD).
