Enrollment Requirements for School Year 2016-2017

All students (NEW and RETURNING) must provide/complete the following documents in order to complete the enrollment process by the deadline given in your offer letter/email/phone call:

  • 2016-2017 Capital City Online Enrollment Form (instructions will be sent directly to families)
  • Proof of DC Residency. Proof of residency must be turned in, in person at the school. Click here to view the Residency Verification Guidelines.
  • DC Child Physical & Oral Health Certificates
  • Free/Reduced Lunch Application, available July 2016


In addition to the above documents, NEW students must provide/complete the following documents to complete the enrollment process:

  • My School DC Enrollment Form
  • Student’s Original Birth Certificate (half- or full-page only). A wallet-sized document, for example, will not be accepted.
  • Proof of legal guardianship (if applicable)
  • Copy of Individualized Education Plan (IEP)/504 plan (if applicable)
  • Copy of student records from prior school.
    • You are required to provide copies of report cards for the current and past school year.  Students applying for high school grades must also provide an official school transcript.  A student’s final acceptance into Capital City High School is contingent upon a favorable review of their final transcript by our School Registrar. The transcript review will determine the appropriate grade level and course placement. If a student does not meet the requirements for the grade level that they were accepted for, they may be placed back on our waiting list for the appropriate grade level. Capital City does not accept “D’s” as a passing grade. The final report card and transcript for the year must be provided by June 27th, 2016. The final progress report for the school year must show completion of the previous grade or be accompanied with a letter from the school stating your child successfully completed the grade.  Your child’s grade level placement at Capital City is not guaranteed until this documentation is received.


Additional Enrollment Requirements for Middle School and High School Students
