ATTN: 8th grade parents, guardians, and students-- New registration information for MHHS below:

This is from Brad Carey, your students’ future counselor at Mountain Heritage High School with some updated registration information. There are two ways for your students to access registration instructions, online and on paper.

If you would prefer to complete the online process, please visit the Mountain Heritage website and click on the Registration link on the homepage. (Click here for Link)

If you prefer to complete paper registration, materials will be distributed to you during pick up times on Tuesday and Wednesday. This will begin with the afternoon session on Tuesday 4:00- 6:00 and both sessions on Wednesday, 8:00-10:00, 4:00- 6:00.

These materials include a copy of the curriculum directory, which tells about each course, and the registration sheet. Once the registration sheet is completed you have three options to return which will be outlined in the directions given with the curriculum guide you will pick up.

The information will need to be returned to the high school by Wednesday, April 8th. Either process gives your student the opportunity to complete registration for their first year of high school. Mountain Heritage High School is excited to see the class of 2024. Thank you very much for your help during this time, and stay safe.
