New Student Enrollment

Welcome to Chapel Hill Independent School District!

Chapel Hill ISD has an open-enrollment policy for students who reside within our district and have all state-mandated immunizations. We have an online process for enrolling new students using Skyward software. Please read the information below on how to join the Bulldog Family!
