Student Registration

2021-2022 Student Registration 
Registration takes place through the online registration portal or in person.

Online Registration Portal
The portal will open July 20 after the summer break.

In-Person Registration
July 29-30 from 9AM-12PM
At the child’s school
(Appointments are required after July 30)

Current STPPS students do not have to register again unless transferring from the STPPS Virtual School.

The Virtual School was a temporary response to COVID-19. Instead of a virtual school, our schools will offer an in-person, face-to-face learning environment this year. Students learn best with direct instruction from a teacher. We have technology in place for students to continue learning through Google Classroom and Google Meet in case of quarantine or illness. Former virtual school students who will remain in STPPS will need to be registered at the physical school in their attendance zone before school begins.
