Thank you for your interest in Pontiac Township High School.  We know that the transition to PTHS is both exciting and filled with many questions.  Please that there are many staff members at PTHS ready to help navigate the many classes, activities, programs, and resources.  There are several steps in the enrollment process beginning with establishing residency and submitting all enrollment materials as outlined below. 

New Transfer Student Steps:
1)  New Student Information Form

2)  Proof of Residency - Proof of residency documents may be faxed (815) 844-6116, e-mailed to the guidance secretary Susan Verdun at [email protected], or dropped off at the Pontiac Township High School Guidance Office.  Examples of documents that can prove residency:  (You only need to provide us with one)
Current tax bill
Utility bill (Gas, Electric, Water, etc.)
Driver's license / State ID
Current vehicle registration
Current home owner insurance policy
Copy of signed lease

3)  Receive a Skyward login e-mail and complete the Online Registration - Once New Student Enrollment Form in Step 1 is completed and verified by the registrar, you will receive a Skyward login to the e-mail address provided.  (Check your junk, spam, and clutter folders!)  You will then verify the information that we have in our system is correct through the online registration process.  Please contact or student registrar Kelly Fogarty at [email protected] if you have questions about this step.  

4)  Health Records - Certificate of Child Health Examination - The Illinois School Code requires a physical examination/health history and evidence of a complete immunization history prior to entrance into the ninth grade.  The physical examination form must be signed by a health care provider and dated within 12 months of the first day of school.  Health Records can be turned in at the Student Health Services Office, faxed to (815) 842-6517, or e-mailed to our school nurse Lindsay Masching at [email protected].

5)  Scheduling Conference - Once the online registration in Step 3 has been been done and all other documents have been received, the Guidance Office will contact you to set up an appointment with one of the counselors.  During this meeting your student will be scheduled for classes.  The links below will help get you started on choosing your courses.
