NCSD School Choice Registration

NCSD's School Choice Registration period closes by the end of the day, January 20th, 2023 . During the School Choice Registration period, families are able to enroll their children for the upcoming 2023-24 school year. NCSD offers School Choice because we believe no single education style fits the needs of all children. School Choice gives families the opportunity to find the schools that are best for their children.


The School Choice Registration period is the time for families of the following groups of students to choose their school preference for the 2023-24 school year:

  • New-to-NCSD students for next school year 
  • Incoming Preschool students
  • Incoming Kindergarteners
  • Students moving from 5th to 6th grade
  • Students moving from 8th to 9th grade
  • Students who wish to switch schools next year - any grade level

You do not need to complete this process if your child is not in one of the above categories. 


We encourage you to research schools before you make your selection. NCSD's Family Guide provides detailed information on each school. Take your time as you make this important decision. Enrollment is NOT based on a first-come, first-served basis; therefore, it does not matter when you complete the process while the window (December 28th, 2022 - January 20th, 2023) is open.
