After reviewing the requirements print and complete the registration packet.  Schedule an appointment to register your student.  Bring the completed forms and the other required documentation to your appointment. If forms are not complete or you do not have the required documents, please call to re-schedule your appointment. 
Once the forms are completed bring them to your appointment with the Registrar. Be sure to bring all required documents listed on the forms.  If your student is coming from a foreign country we need to make a copy of the original transcript document showing the name of the student, dates, classes, and grades for all their high school years. The document needs to be stamped and signed by the school. Emailed documents or copies of documents are not acceptable.  If you are coming from another school in the United States, please bring a copy of your transcript with you.  It does not need to be official.

Leaving JFK?

If you are leaving John F. Kennedy High School you need to have a parent/guardian contact your Attendance Clerk. A checkout sheet will be generated which you will need to bring to your teachers/library to sign. Your next step is to take the sign out sheet to Ms. Facha in the Business Office. She will check for any overdue books, etc. YOU CANNOT CHECK OUT WITHOUT ALL THE REQUIRED SIGNATURES. Your final stop will be with the Registrar. You will be given a copy of the checkout sheet and a copy of your transcript to take to your new school (As long as all debt's are paid). If you owe money or have missing books, your new school will receive an unofficial copy of your transcripts. Schools require an official copy to give you credit for the classes you have taken. So it is best to pay all your debts as you are leaving.
