To register a student in one of WJCC’s schools, please visit the school in your attendance zone in person and provide:
- Two (2) proofs of residency (a utility bill, copy of a lease, purchase agreement, etc.)
- Certified copy or affidavit of birth certificate
- Immunization records
- Virginia Physical Examination Form
- Previous school records
Virginia enrollment requirements
- A child must be five years old on or before September 30 of the upcoming school year to enroll in kindergarten.
- A certified birth certificate or affidavit regarding birth for any student being admitted for the first time to any public school.
- The student must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian with two proofs of address (lease agreement/mortgage statement and current gas, electric or water bills).
- A copy of a comprehensive physical examination from a qualified licensed physician or licensed nurse practitioner, performed within the twelve months prior to the date the student enters kindergarten or elementary school. When a physical is completed for first-time entry to kindergarten, the Virginia Form MCH-213G can be used or a similar physical form provided by the healthcare provider. If transferring from another school, school division or from out of state, a copy of such an examination must be in the previous school’s record and available upon request. The need for a physical examination does not apply to pupils entering secondary schools, although this report is often very beneficial.
- Proof of immunizations for all students entering a public school. Month, day, and year of immunizations must be reflected. Kindergartners, entering school for the first time, must have immunizations verified on either a Virginia Form MCH-213G, public health department form, or an immunization document from a qualified licensed physician or licensed nurse practitioner. For your convenience, directions are available for completing the MCH-213G form.
