New Students
The Valparaiso Community Schools provides public school education for resident children of Center Township in Porter County, Indiana. 
Book rental fees are due in full at the beginning of each year. Families who qualify for free lunches automatically qualify for textbook assistance.
Enrolling a New Student
  1. Contact the staff at the Ben Franklin Middle School to determine the school to which your child will be assigned.
  2. Contact the secretary at your child’s new school to schedule an appointment with a Guidance Counselor.
    Visit the new school and bring the following documents:
    • child’s birth certificate
    • verification of immunizations
    • proof of residency
    • legal custody papers (if applicable)
    • unofficial transcript or home-based report card
    • name and address of previous school
  3. After your child is properly enrolled, the school will contact the previous school to request copies of official records and standard test results.
