New Student Registration
We welcome you and your child to the Carmel Central School District! The experience of these memorable years will be exciting and rewarding. We look forward to working with you as a team to support your child’s social, emotional intellectual, physical and aesthetic development.
As a public school system, we welcome all students who live within the boundaries of the Carmel Central School District and meet state age and health requirements. Our district has one high school, one middle school and three elementary schools. Students are assigned to our elementary schools based on the attendance zone where they reside. Please see our District-Assigned Roads guide to determine which elementary school your child will attend.
To register a kindergarten through Grade 12 student, please use our PowerSchool online registration system. You will be prompted to create a PowerSchool account or log into an existing one. The online registration system has a "save" feature which allows a draft version of the registration to be saved and revisited for completion at a later time.
If you do not have access to a computer to complete the online registration process, please contact the school's building registrar.
If English is not your first language and you require assistance with registration, please contact our bilingual Outreach Coordinator, Lillian Cruz-Urbina, who can assist with completing the registration packet or help answer any questions: email@example.com; (845) 878-2094 x258 (office) or (845) 540-9094 (cell).
