2024-2025 K-12 NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION

  • New to District Student Registration (K-12)

    K-12 Student Registration

    St. Bernard Parish K-12 In-Person Registration

    St. Bernard Parish Public School System is registering new students enrolling in grades kindergarten through 12th grade. Students who attended a St. Bernard Parish Public School during the 2024-2025 school year do not need to re-enroll. Registration appointments will begin in June.

    Parents or legal guardians will need to call their student’s district school to schedule an in-person appointment to register. New residents can determine their district school by entering their address into www.sbpsb.org/schoolzones.

    Students who are transferring schools within our system and have been previously enrolled in a St. Bernard Parish Public School will also need to make an appointment to verify residency.

    Each school’s contact information can be found on our district website by clicking the specific school on the top left portion of the page.

    At the time of the appointment, parents or legal guardians should be prepared with all required documentation. A list of the required documentation can be found below. 

    Registration packets will be provided at the time of the appointment for those choosing to register in-person. In-person registration will take approximately 45 minutes.

    Questions or concerns can be directed to our Central Office at 504-301-2000 or the school’s principal.
