Welcome to the Richmond County School System!
We are excited your child will be attending the Richmond County School System. Our system has an easy-to-use, secure, online registration system that will allow you to complete many of the forms required for registering your child. Only parents and legal guardians may register students. Once you complete the online registration portion, you will need to go to your child's zoned school to provide additional documentation* (see below) to complete the enrollment of your child.

Georgia law requires that children must be five years old on or before September 1 to enroll in kindergarten and six years old on or before September 1 to enroll in first grade in public schools. A child who has lived in another state for at least two years before moving to Georgia, and was legally enrolled in a public kindergarten or first grade in that state, may enroll in a Georgia public school kindergarten or first grade, provided the child will be five for kindergarten and six for first grade by December 31. Limited seats are available at various locations in pre-Kindergarten programs for preschoolers who participate in the annual Georgia Pre-K Lottery program. To qualify for pre-K, children must be four (4) years old by September 1.
