New Student Registration

Students who are new to FCPS

For students new to FCPS, before beginning the registration process, please view the FCPS boundary map to see which Fairfax County Public School serves a particular address. If you live within the Rachel Carson boundary map and are ready to register a new student, contact Lesa Lloyd, our middle school registrar, at 703-925-3614 or @email to schedule a registration appointment. The student and biological parent/legal guardian must be present during registration.

What a new student to FCPS will need to register

Students who are not new to FCPS

If this is not a student's first year in FCPS and the student has attended the elementary school that feeds into Rachel Carson, they do not need to register. They are already registered within the system. If a student is already an FCPS student but has moved, the parent or guardian should contact Lesa Lloyd, our middle school registrar, at 703-925-3614 or @email to assure that the school records are properly transferred.  

Central Student Registration Office

This office provides school enrollment for students whose home language is one other than English, all students whose parents do not reside in Fairfax County, all students or legally adoptive parents who do not reside in Fairfax County, tuition-paying students, and students in foster care placed by other Virginia counties or other state agencies.  Please begin your registration process at the Central Registration Office, located at Dunn Loring: 703-204-6740.

Military family registration
