Enrollment Process

  • Step 1:  Enrollment Request

    Submit an enrollment application and provide any additional required documents* on or before the semester’s enrollment deadline. This application is not the same as enrolling in the district. It is a separate application that is used exclusively for Harbor Learning Center programs. Harbor Learning Center Application 

    Required documents may be sent via:


    (360) 538-2183

    Registrar, Grays Harbor Academy
    Harbor Learning Center
    300 North Williams Street
    Aberdeen, WA 98520

    *Be sure to review the General Requirements for information on all the documents needed for enrollment. Failure to provide the required documentation could delay the enrollment process and prevent a student's acceptance.

    Step 2:  Consultation
    A staff member will contact you to arrange a telephone consultation. The purpose of the consultation is to discuss the student’s academic history, interests, and future plans, in order to determine if Grays Harbor Academy is an appropriate placement and to identify which courses the student should take. Telephone consultations are typically conducted within 3 weeks of the enrollment deadline.

    Step 3:  Acceptance
    You will receive an email regarding the student’s acceptance. This email will include a list of dates and times when an orientation meeting can be scheduled. You will need to reply with several appointment times that would work.

    Orientation meetings are typically scheduled during the two weeks before the start of the semester. The average meeting lasts 30 minutes.

    Note: If a registration packet is necessary, the family can complete those online on our district website under New Student Enrollment or by clicking here New Student Enrollment.

           **If the student is living outside the Aberdeen School District service area, you will also need to fill out a Choice Form. This can be found on the same page as the New Student Enrollment. 

    Step 4:  Meeting Confirmation
    You will receive an email, confirming the date, time, and location of your orientation meeting. You and the student will both need to attend the meeting.

    Step 5:  Orientation
    The principal and/or mentor teacher will meet with you and the student to review the Written Student Learning Plan (WSLP),  Statement of Understanding (SOU), and any other required paperwork. If the student needs to borrow a laptop computer for school work, it will be issued at this meeting. The student will receive a login for the Edgenuity SIS and receive a general overview of the interface, along with navigation tips, and have an opportunity to ask questions.

    Step 6:  Term Begins
    Students will have access to their courses on the date the semester begins.
