In-person registration assistance available at schools

Parents and guardians who need assistance in registering their child to attend Charles County Public Schools (CCPS) can get in-person help at select schools.

Due to employee work schedules during the summer, some schools do not have a dedicated staff member to process registrations. While parents and guardians can complete the registration process online at, those in need of in-person assistance can visit a school to work with a CCPS staff member familiar with the process.

All CCPS high schools and middle schools have staff to process registrations — parents needing to register their child in middle or high school can visit the school directly. To guarantee a staff member is available to help, parents should contact the school to set up a day and time to visit. For a list of school contacts, click here. Click the grade level, then the school’s name. Contact information is in the footer of each school’s website.

Six elementary schools serve as hubs, or a centralized location, for registration assistance. Those schools are Dr. Gustavus Brown Elementary School, Dr. James Craik Elementary School, Eva Turner Elementary School, Dr. Thomas L. Higdon Elementary School, Mary H. Matula Elementary School and William A. Diggs Elementary School. Title I schools have a parent liaison available during select times and days to aid parents.

Title I schools include C. Paul Barnhart Elementary School, Dr. Brown, Daniel of St. Thomas Jenifer Elementary School, Mt. Hope/Nanjemoy Elementary School, Dr. Samuel A. Mudd Elementary School, J.P. Ryon Elementary School and Eva Turner. While Indian Head Elementary School is a Title I school, it will not have a parent liaison available this summer. Parents of Indian Head students can contact the school or parent liaisons at other schools for help with registration.
