Registration at George Mason High School for the year 2013-14 has 2 steps:
Once you have obtained residency in Falls Church City, proceed to the FCCPS Online Enrollment page at www.fccps.org > Registration and complete the address verification and student registration. Your submission will be reviewed and approved by the George Mason High School registrar.
- * You must have an approved Falls Church City residence reserved/owned/leased before you begin the registration process.
- * A hard copy of the registration is available upon request for those choosing not to complete the steps online.
In the months of June – August, once the online registration is completed and approved, a Course Request form will be emailed to you for completion.
Once you have completed the online registration, you may call (703) 248-5525 or email firstname.lastname@example.org (Mid-June through Mid-August) or email@example.com (all other months) to schedule your enrollment appointment. Below lists in detail what will be required from you prior to or at the enrollment appointment (much of which you will have the option to upload on the registration page or email to us prior to your appointment). All of the required items must be approved and on file before a student will be issued a GMHS class schedule.
- * If you do not have all the documentation and immunizations that are required for enrollment turned in by or at your appointment time, you will not be able to register and will be required to reschedule your appointment. If you are unsure of whether you meet these requirements, please call and ask the counseling office prior to your appointment.
- * Please note that George Mason High School’s registration requirements and practices may be different from those of other FCCPS schools. What is required or practiced at one school may not be at GMHS.
- * Both the parent/guardian (listed on student birth certificate or court documents) and student are required to attend the enrollment appointment.
