Register to Attend an Amherst CSD School

  • The process of registering a child for Amherst Central School District begins online and ends with a meeting at your home school to which you will bring all required documents and forms. Registration is complete when the online registration has been completed, submitted, and the required documentation has been verified.

    The Amherst Central School District uses Aspen, our student information system, to maintain student and family records.

    New for 2020-2021! We also use Family Connection, an online platform, to register new students and collect the information we will need about your child.

    Contact Us - For whatever reason, if you are unable to register online, please contact your home school for further information.
