In Person Registration:
We encourage all sophomore students to come to our in person registration, especially if they are not familiar with Capital High School. This will be a great opportunity to see the school and locate your classrooms. Our teachers will not be on contract at this time, but it still may be helpful to locate the classrooms.
Parking passes can be purchased and issued on the day of registration. If you are purchasing a parking pass ($15) you will need to bring vehicle registration, proof of insurance, and a driver’s license.
Capital spirit wear will be on hand and available to purchase during registration.
Should you choose to register in person, you are also able to purchase a yearbook ($55.00) and ASB Activity Card ($30.00) which gives students access to all home games for free, discounts on dances and other activities. All student athletes and students in the performing arts are required to purchase ASB Activity cards. Activity Cards and student ID’s will not be issued on registration date. More information regarding student ID’s is included below.
Students who are familiar with the layout of Capital High School may choose to complete the registration process at our online store.
The online store will allow you to purchase ASB activity cards, parking permits, yearbooks and pay any outstanding fines. Students can then pick up the items during the first week of school.
Student ID’s and ASB Activity Cards:
All students will get a student ID free of charge. Student ID’s are vital as it allows students access to the building during school hours. Pictures for student ID’s and our yearbook will be taken on August 18th. Your student ID will be issued at that time. Pictures will not be taken during registration. If you choose to purchase an ASB Activity Card you will be issued a sticker to place on your student ID indicating that you have access to the benefits that it provides.
Schedule change requests begins August 2nd:
We will not accept any requests for specific teachers or class periods. We will only be changing schedules to correct errors, replace classes that have already been completed or add open periods. If you would like to request a schedule change, please email your Capital High Counselor. We can address a majority of schedule change requests through email.
