Student Registration

  • Parents/Guardians of Future LCHS Students:

    Welcome you to the Lawton Chiles High School (LCHS) Registration Process!  It is our goal to make registering your student and selecting courses as seamless as possible. In order to do this, please review the information below carefully to complete your student’s registration. We cannot enroll your student until all requirements have been met and all registration materials have been received. (See below for office hours and registration instructions.)

    To enroll at LCHS, you have the option of emailing all of the necessary documents (see directions below) or bringing them to the school in person on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. Please make sure that you have completed Step 1 of the enrollment process and have all necessary documents listed in Step 2 upon arrival.

    If you are unsure as to whether or not you are in the LCHS Zone, please check the Leon County Schools District’s website for the School Zone Lookup located under the “Parents and Students" Tab.

    Who Needs to Enroll?

    • Private School Students
    • Out-of-State or Out-of-County Students
    • Home School Students re-entering public school (you must first withdraw from Home School and provide LCHS with all of the necessary registration documentation)
    • Re-assigned students - must still provide LCHS with two proofs of residency

    Please note the following registration exceptions:

    • If your student is currently in the 8th grade at a Leon County Middle or Charter School, Leon County Schools Policy 5120 states that you must provide proof of residency to your student's middle school before promotion to the 9th grade.  Once you have provided this documentation to the Middle or Charter School, your student will automatically be enrolled at the school they are zoned for based on residency for the 2021-2022 school year.  (The only exception to this will be if you have applied for and been approved for school choice; in which case you will be enrolled at the school for which you were approved.) 
    • If your student is currently enrolled in the 9th - 11th grade at a Leon County High School and you have moved into the LCHS Zone, you will need to update your residency with your student's current school.  During the summer, you will automatically be enrolled at CHS for the 2021-2022 school year.

    Please follow the instructions for registration below:



    Parent or legal guardian enrolling student must live in the Lawton Chiles High School (LCHS) designated School Zone. A “School Zone Lookup” is available on the Leon County School District’s website under Parents and Students tab. Anyone other than a parent attempting to enroll a minor student must show proof of legal guardianship.
