New Student Registration is a process for students and families who are completely NEW to Athens City Schools. This is the correct pathway to register if you have moved into the Athens City School district mid-year, or if you are a student entering grades 1-12 for the upcoming school year.

Documents Required to Complete New Student Registration:

  • Social Security Card (Optional) If a student does not have an SSN, a temporary number shall be assigned as specified by the ALSDE.
  • Alabama Immunization Record 
  • Proof of Residence (Current utility bill, mortgage statement or rent lease agreement. When two families reside at the same address, a Landlord Letter may be submitted).
  • Proof of Custody/Guardianship - Custody papers may be required if the student doesn't reside with both birth parents. Custody/Guardianship will be made through the Judge's office.
