New Student Registration

Welcome to Fairfax High School!

We're excited to welcome our newest Lions!

New students fall into one of two registration categories:

  • Students who are new to Fairfax High School and are not currently enrolled in another school in FCPS.
  • Students who are new to Fairfax High School and who are currently enrolled in FCPS, but not a rising 9th-grade student who previously attended Lanier Middle School or Rocky Run Middle School as an 8th-grade student.
    • Rising 9th-grade students who attended Lanier Middle School or Rocky Run Middle School as an 8th-grade student do not need to enroll. The records are automatically transferred.

To join Fairfax High School, first determine if your student lives in our boundary by viewing the FCPS boundary locator

Enrolling parent, if your student does live in the Fairfax HS boundary and does meet one of the two categories above, please fill out the new student registration intake/signup form below. This form will be submitted to Kristin Strong, our school registrar, who will be able to assist you with the new student registration process. 

  • Students who are looking for information on how to register for a Fairfax Academy course should visit the Fairfax Academy website.

Please submit this new student registration signup/intake form in English.

Is this the Student's First Year in FCPS?
If applicable, please share any additional information that you would like our school registrar to know.
Note: Submitting this form does not register the student. Submitting this form begins the new student registration process with the school. Our school registrar will contact you with the next steps to get your new student enrolled quickly and efficiently.

Are You Registering a Student Whose Home Language Is Other Than or in Addition to English?

Student families wishing to register a student with a home language other than or in addition to English should please contact the FCPS Student Registration Welcome Center. Here professionals may assess your student's English language skill and/or educational level. These assessments can provide valuable information to the local school and support your child's instructional needs.  

Do You Have Special Registration Situations? 

Special registration situations can include nonparent registrations, situations involving divorced or separated parents, homelessness, foster care, and foreign exchange students.

FCPS welcomes responsive and collaborative communication and partnerships with the parents and families of our students.
