New Student Enrollment

We are pleased to welcome you to Northwest Allen County Schools! Here are some details on how to get your child or children enrolled.

Enrollment Requirements

  • The child must be at least 5 years old by August 1 of the year he or she will begin school.
  • The child must live within the NACS attendance area. Parents will be required to show proof of residency. Please note that elementary attendance areas are changing for Fall, 2021, to accommodate our new Aspen Meadow Elementary School.

Enrollment Process

  • Enrollment is handled at the individual school. This link is a Directory of NACS Schools with addresses and contact information.
  • The following documentation is needed to enroll:
    • Child's birth certificate (Board of Health copy, not the hospital version)
    • Proof of residence as defined in the link (driver's license and a gas/electric/water utility bill)
    • Child's immunization records - requirements and a form are linked here
    • Health Information Form - linked here, complete and print
    • If applicable, court documents for custody or visitation issues. A copy of any legal documents regarding custody or visitation pertaining to the child, such as custody papers, divorce decree or other court-ordered papers must be provided. Please be assured that this information is kept confidential. The court documents you provide should be the most recent and final copy of any court decree.

Incoming Kindergarten Students

  • For incoming kindergarten students, traditionally a Kindergarten Roundup takes place for each school wherein students and families come visit their classrooms, meet teachers and staff as they tour the building. Due to the pandemic, this function is on hold. Principals will communicate details of opportunities for you to visit the school, or you may call the front office to inquire. 
  • Once enrollment is complete, watch for details about Fall Registration - dates and times are available at the link.
