Welcome to Upper Arlington Schools! There are four steps to our registration process for students new to the district for the 2017-2018 school year.

Registration for kindergarten and new-to-the-district students for 2017-2018 begins March 1. Incoming kindergarten families should complete these forms on or before March 10, 2017, to expedite processing.

Back-to-school forms for returning students will be offered on our website this spring. Please do not fill out the online form below if you have a returning student.

Please read all of these steps before completing your online registration. Once your online registration is completed, please set up an appointment as listed in Step 3 to finalize your registration.
