Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Q: What is the registration process?
A: You will first complete the online registration here. Once the online registration portion is complete, a parent/guardian must schedule an in-person appointment with the Registrar, Stacey Mattox, at the Oakmont Central Administration Building to submit the additional required documents (proof of birth, proof of residency, and immunization records). The online program will also prompt you to print 9 forms to complete and bring with you to your appointment (these forms are also located on the main Student Registration page.
Q: Can I mail/email/fax my registration information or just show up to drop it off?
A: No. An in-person appointment is required in the event there are questions about your registration material. Registration is by appointment only due to the high volume of families who need to register. An appointment system ensures a smooth and efficient process, both for families and the Registrar.
