Registration for New Students ~~

All new students to Horry County Schools and Socastee High School must register through the Horry County Schools New Student Registration page.  Please visit HCS's Registration Page for more information.  If you are transferring your student from another Horry County Schools High School you must complete the new student online registration form and submit your current proof of residency along with the form after withdrawing from your current high school. Please note that transfers into Socastee High School for the 2022-2023 school year are only accepted for students who have physically moved into the Socastee High attendance zone.

Registering New Students

  • To register your student for school, you will need to complete the online registration form as well as upload the following information at the time of enrollment: 
    • The student’s legal birth certificate, (if born in South Carolina, this must be the long-form, we no longer accept the short form/card);
    • Current immunization records; and,
    • Proof of Residency (POR). Please submit a POR that meets one of the following requirements:
      • A copy of a complete utility bill (electric, natural gas, or water - HTC and/or cell phone bills are not accepted) with nothing ripped off, showing your name and residential service address (not your mailing address). **If you or your family are living with a relative or friend at their address, you will need to submit the Authorization to Reside form completed by them along with a copy of their Proof of Residency;
      • A complete, signed copy of your rental/lease agreement showing the address of the unit; or
      • A copy of your deed of sale or mortgage.
  • All students, regardless of age, must be enrolled by a parent or authorized guardian.  If you are an acting guardian, we require legal court/judge-approved proof of guardianship at the time of enrollment.
  • Although not necessary at the time of registration, please provide any school transcripts, current grades, report cards, Individual Education Plans, and/or 504 plans your student may have.  This aids in the process of requesting records from your student's former school.

A note on transferring your student from another Horry County High School or an online school:

  • If you are transferring your student from another school within Horry County, you will need to upload a copy of your withdrawal form from the high school the student has left and proof of residency for your new residence.
  • If you are transferring your student from an online school, you must withdraw your student from the online school prior to enrolling your student.  Students cannot be enrolled in an online school and attend classes at the same time as attending Socastee High except under special circumstances dictated by Horry County Schools, i.e. HCS Virtual School - Flex.
