We appreciate your interest in our educational system!
The Stowe School District operates a highly regarded Pre-K–12 school system. To learn more about the schools and learning opportunities in Stowe, please follow the links under “Our Schools” on the menu bar above.
Please note that students are eligible for enrollment in Stowe if they have a parent or legal guardian who is a legal resident of the respective town(s) of the district, or have reached the age of majority (18) and reside in town themselves.
Are you a non-resident but still interested in attending our schools? Non-resident Tuition Students may contact the office of the school they wish to attend for general information about enrollment opportunities.
Students entering grades 9–12 may apply to attend Peoples Academy or Stowe High School through Vermont’s Public High School Choice system. Please contact your high school of residence for more information on the application process.
All new students, regardless of age, need to enroll before attending school. It is recommended that you contact the school you will be enrolling in and make an appointment to stop in to begin the process and become familiar with the school staff and facilities.
There are two options for returning students to update their enrollment information with the school. Traditional printed "summer packets" can be mailed home upon request or picked up at the school. The second option is to use our E-Registration portal to complete the process electronically. The portal is accessed through the Parent Portal. Please contact your school if you need help accessing your Parent Portal account or would like assistance completing the online registration.
For school enrollment in Vermont, the term “residence” means where one is domiciled, that is, where one actually lives. Residency requirements are not met merely by owning property. Residency requirements are not met by staying somewhere frequently. Residency requirements for enrollment in one of the schools in the Elmore-Morristown or Stowe School District are met when a child's parent(s) or legal guardian takes affirmative steps to establish his or her one and only place of domicile in Elmore, Morristown or Stowe. As a result, when enrolling your student(s) in one of our schools, you must provide evidence of legal residency. In other words, you must be a legal resident of Elmore or Morristown to attend the Elmore School, Morristown Elementary, Peoples Academy Middle Level or Peoples Academy. If enrolling in Stowe Elementary, Stowe Middle or Stowe High School, you must be a legal resident of the Town of Stowe. Students who have reached the age of majority (18) should reside in town themselves.
When enrolling your student(s), or re-enrolling after withdrawal, please contact the school’s administrative office as early as possible. They will discuss the details of enrollment, including proof of residency.
The following items are helpful to support proof of legal residency for enrollment:
Other items that may be helpful include:
Second homes, vacation homes, rental properties and commercial properties are not considered primary residences (these are taxed using the Vermont non-residential tax rate). In cases where residency is in question, additional documentation and an affidavit of residency may be required.
If you are unsure of your residency or how to establish it for school enrollment purposes, please contact Lamoille South Supervisory Union at (802) 888-4541 for assistance in making this determination. Your assistance with timely enrollment and residency information helps us ensure the educational needs of students are responsibly met. We appreciate your assistance with these important matters!
