New Student Registration

Welcome to Spruce Creek High School!

New student enrollments require a complete application as well as several documents gathered prior to enrollment. Below are links to the needed documents. Once you have gathered all information, please email Dawn Lipsitz at dmlipsit@volusia.k12.fl.us to set up an appointment to go over your application. At this point, we will set a start date for your student. Please contact our registrar with all questions regarding enrollments, withdraws and transcripts. To ensure we have enough time to register your child, REGISTRATIONS ARE BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. Please don’t come to the school until you have a day and time set.

You can view the Program of Studies to see the programs and classes available at Spruce Creek High School prior to your appointment to see what classes you would like to be registered for.
