Online Enrollment

Marquette Area Public Schools Elementary Enrollment (Grades K-5)

Thank you for registering your child for elementary school at Marquette Area Public Schools. Once you have completed online registration, you will receive a call from your resident school to schedule an appointment to finalize enrollment. Enrollment must be finalized before sending your child to school in the fall. Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to meeting with you.

If you are registering for kindergarten, please note that according to Michigan Law (MCL 380.1447) children are required to be five years old on or before December 1 of the school calendar year in which the child attends school to attend kindergarten. This minimum age requirement is the same for entering junior kindergarten as it is for entering kindergarten.
