If there is any reason to question a student’s residence, the principal or designee may make a home visit, require the parent/guardian to sign a statement under penalty or perjury as to the validity of his/her residence, or require additional documents establishing proof of residence.

q No prior enrollment in any CUSD School

A copy of the student’s birth certificate is required if the student has not previously been enrolled at a school in California.







Students will not be admitted without proper documentation of immunization.  A copy of the “Yellow” Health Record or other Official Health Record (School or doctor) must be provided to the school.





An unofficial transcript or report card is necessary to ensure the student is placed in the appropriate classes to meet CUSD graduation requirements.  Please provide this document as follows:

Any student transferring mid-semester will need to bring “in progress withdrawal grades” from their previous school.   After a student has enrolled at Capistrano Valley High School, the guidance office will request the official records/cum file from the previous school.

Additional paperwork that may be required:
  • If you are assuming responsibility for a child with the permission of that child's parents, you will need to complete a Caregiver's Authorization Affidavit. Forms are available at the school from the Registrar. The form must be completed prior to the registration meeting with the academic advisor.

  • If you are requesting Honors placement, please bring certification and placement recommendations from the previous school.
  • If English is the student's second language, preliminary assessment will be done.  Further assessment may be needed.
You may wish to confirm that you reside within the Capistrano Valley High School attendance area prior to making an appointment to enroll your child. We frequently have students arrive to enroll only to find out they are at the wrong school. We are happy to assist you to determine the appropriate school site for your student(s). Please call the registrar if you have any questions. 949-364-6100
