AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Local schools have opened up registration for new students for the 2023-2024 school year.

Here’s what parents need to know about upcoming registration for each school district.

Columbia County

Registration for students new to the Columbia County School District for the 2023-2024 school year is now open for grades K-12.

Registration is available online and allows parents and legal guardians to upload required documentation like birth certificates, proofs of residency, and more, all from their home computers.

For current students planning to return next school year, the Annual Update has been replaced with Existing Student Registration. Beginning July 5, 2023, parents can complete Existing Student Registration via Parent Portal. Parents are encouraged to access Parent Portal before school ends this year, to ensure access over the summer months.

All new and existing student registration must be completed with the required documentation before the first day of school on August 4, 2023.

For more information including registration timelines, requirements, and Parent Portal tutorials, visit the district website.

Richmond County

Students new to Richmond County Schools, including transfers from in-state and out-of-state schools, should complete the online registration first. If you would prefer to register in person, you can find the school that you are zoned for and make an appointment.

To register your child, please complete all the pages in the online registration application.

  • Print, copy, or write down the Application or Confirmation number.

Aiken County Public Schools is pleased to announce that online student registration is now open for new and returning students for the upcoming 2023-24 school year.

With next year’s planned implementation of the modified academic school year calendar, Aiken County students are returning to school on July 25. Parents/guardians are encouraged to register their student(s) for the upcoming school year as early as possible.
