Student Enrollment:

Parents who are new to the area, reside within District attendance boundaries, and are enrolling a student for the first time in Capistrano Unified may enroll their child at the school serving their neighborhood online or in person.

  • There is no need to re-enroll students who are currently enrolled at a CUSD school.

Parent/Student Portal Accounts:


To register for a Parent/Student Portal account, contact your child’s school office for the confidential information needed to add your students to your parent account. The Portal is used to update demographic and emergency contact information, view real-time attendance data, test scores, report cards, transcripts and more.



Kindergarten Parents
Attention Kindergarten Parents!


All neighborhood schools accept registration forms for kindergarten students. Changes in the entry date for kindergarten occurred with the implementation of the Kindergarten Readiness Act in 2010. A child must turn 5 by September 1, of the new school year.

Parents are encouraged to attend kindergarten orientation sessions held in the spring prior to the child entering school in the fall. For more information on kindergarten registration and orientation, please contact individual schools or ask for the District publication, “Welcome to Kindergarten.”
