2023-2024 1st grade Registration Information

  • If your child attended Kindergarten at an HCS school during the 2022-23 school year, they are considered a returning student and do not have to complete this pre-registration process.  You will simply need to register them as a returning student when registration opens.

    1st grade registration for students new to Horry County Schools will open March 27, 2023. Phase one of 1st grade registration includes submitting information and required documentation. 1st grade registration for the 2023-2024 school year is online.
