Enrollment for New Students

Due to the emergency school closures, Poway Unified School District has updated the new student enrollment process for the 2020-2021 school year. While schools are closed, the enrollment process will be completed electronically. There will be multiple steps to the enrollment process that are outlined below. Please read through them carefully. We understand this is a change from our normal process, and we hope to make this as easy as possible for all new families. We appreciate your patience as we work through this process together. We look forward to helping you prepare for the upcoming school year, and can't wait to meet our new students once schools reopen.

PLEASE NOTE: Your student’s enrollment ensures a seat at a school in Poway Unified. We make every effort to enroll your child at your neighborhood school. In some cases, classes at your neighborhood school may reach capacity, in which case we will work with you to place your child at a nearby school.‚Äč
