To register a student who is new to the Central York School District, parents should make an appointment to meet with the appropriate personnel at the school building in which the student will be enrolled. If parents do not know which school their child will attend, they may call the district Transportation Office at (717) 846-6789, ext. 1298.

Parents of children who are entering Central York Middle School or Central York High School will need to call and make an appointment with the school guidance counselor.

Residency Verification

At registration, parents will be asked to provide two forms of documentation that establishes the new student's residency in Central York School District. These two forms of documentation could include:

  • A Pennsylvania Driver's License
  • A Pennsylvania Vehicle Registration

Parents who are in the process of moving into the district should bring a copy of a Purchase or Rental Agreement, or a rental receipt that verifies intent to establish residency in the district.
