Parent(s)/guardian(s) who are enrolling student(s) at Irwin County High School must complete a Student Enrollment Packet (link at right). Enrollment packets are available at the ICHS Guidance Office or Board of Education, or may be downloaded via the link to the right. Completed enrollment packets should be turned it at the ICHS Guidance Office. Once the enrollment packet is received, student records will be requested from the transferring school. A student will be enrolled at ICHS when all required enrollment documentation has been received and reviewed. The parent(s)/guardian(s) will be contacted by our guidance secretary Wilma Crow, Ms. Andrea Fletcher, 10th and 12th grades counselor, or Dr. Katrina Billingsley, 9th and 11th grade counselor, to provide additional school information and to schedule a start date.
To help ensure a smooth transition to ICHS, the school counselors are available to meet with parent(s)/guardian(s) and new students during the following times and if necessary, by appointment:
|Monday||8:30 - 9:30 am, 1:30 - 2:30 pm|
|Wednesday||8:30 - 9:30 am, 1:30 - 2:30 pm|
|Friday||8:30 - 9:30 am|
Documents needed to enroll students into Irwin County High School:
- Birth Certificate (or other proof of age)

The Georgia Technology Authority partnering with the Georgia Department of Public Health provides Request Official Vital Event Records (ROVER), making it convenient to order certificates directly from the State of Georgia.

- Current home utility bills (gas, electric, water, sanitation, cable, or land line telephone bill)

- For those parents living with someone, a third-person affidavit of residency (notarized affidavit shall be completed and signed by parent, guardian or other person, as well as the legal owner or lessor of the property where the student and the parent, guardian, or other person reside). Residency Affidavits may be obtained at the Central Office located at 210 Apple Street, Ocilla, GA.
