• Welcome to the Richmond County School System!

    We are excited your child will be attending the Richmond County School System. Our school system has an easy, secure, online system for parents and legal guardians to register your child.

     

  • Kindergarten Registration

    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. Visit our Kindergarten registration webpage for more details. 

    Pre-K Registration

    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. Visit our Pre-K registration webpage for more details.
