High School Registration for 8th Graders

High School Registration for 8th Graders

On Tuesday, April 19, school assignments and waitlist status were released and sent out to families and became available on the Source. We hope that you have had a chance to review your student’s school assignment for next school year with them. If you have yet to review this information, your student can share it with you on the source, or you can look up their assignment using the assignment lookup tool.

High School Registration Event

Next Thursday, April 28, counselors from our 3 main feeder high schools: Rainier Beach, Franklin, and Cleveland, will be coming to Aki for a registration event.

The counselors will meet with students assigned to their schools and support them with class registration for 9th grade classes and answer any questions they have about their schools. Students assigned to a school different than these three high schools will have an alternate setting for them to be in where they will reach out to their high school counselors for support with registration.

Registration Materials

Please see the information below regarding High School Registration materials and contact information should your family have questions. This information can also be found on the Aki website and is available to be translated to different languages.
