New Student Registration

Procedures for registering a student who is new to FCPS and will be attending Holmes MS

Students who are new to FCPS

For students new to FCPS, before beginning the registration process, please view the FCPS boundary map to see which Fairfax County Public School serves a particular address. 

If you live within the Holmes MS boundary map and are ready to register a new student, please contact Vianmarie Milan, our school registrar, a 703-658-5940 or to schedule a registration appointment.

What a new student to FCPS will need to register

Military Family Registration 

To help make your transition easier, Department of Defense (DOD) employees from each branch of service provide a School Liaison Officer or a point of contact. School Liaison Officers are the primary point of contact for school-related matters and assist military families with school issues.

Translation Services

Registration requirements documents and translations are available in Arabic, Chinese, Farsi, Korean, Spanish, Urdu, and Vietnamese. For recorded information about registration, please call 703-204-6795.

Students who are returning to Holmes MS or FCPS

If this is not a student's first year in FCPS and the student has not moved from the elementary schools that feed into Holmes, they do not need to register. They are already registered within the system. If a student is already an FCPS student but has moved, the parent or guardian should contact Vianmarie Milan, our school registrar, at 703-658-5940 or to assure that the school records are properly transferred.
