    Below is a step-by-step guide for registering your child for Grades 1-12 (New and Returning Students)

    Step One:

    To get started, the District requires the following information to complete your child's registration. 

    Please begin by gathering the items listed below:

    • Your child's birth certificate
    • Two Proofs of residency (lease/rental agreement/mortgage statement; automobile registration/insurance card; utility bill; pay stub/ACCESS card)
    • Photo ID of Parent/Guardian enrolling child (Driver's License or Identify Card)
    • Copy of your child's YTD Immunizations as required by law (must be a copy from Health Care Provider)

    You will be asked to upload these documents...a clear scan or picture (jpeg or the like) will upload.

    Step Two:

    The District requires that several documents need to be downloaded, completed, and returned to the District.

    (You may return these documents by scanning and attaching to an email, sending through the US mail, or dropping off to our District Offices.)

    District address is: 110 Fort Cherry Road, McDonald, PA 15057.


    Return the following completed forms to Mrs. Linda Spinden, Elementary Center Nurse (grades 1-6), lspinden@fortcherry.org and/or Mrs. Mariah Jones, High School Nurse (grades 7-12) mjones@fortcherry.org:

    2. In 3rd and 7th grades a completed dental examination form (form provided in the online registration packet, must be completed by your dentist)
    3. In 7th grade a scoliosis screening is required.

    If your child has already seen a doctor or dentist IN THIS CALENDAR YEAR, please have the medical professional complete these forms and upload them to the online registration portal. 

    RESIDENCY FORMS (forms only need to be completed if you answer "YES" to either question below):

    Forms may be downloaded from the online registration packet.

    Return the following completed forms to Mrs. Carol Staley, District Registrar, cstaley@fortcherry.org.

    Step Four:

    Come to the Administration Office behind the Elementary Center to complete the 2 forms that need to be notarized (the district has free notarization) and sign a request for records so that we may ask the prior school for your student's records.
