For Nonpublic Schools and Districts

Registering a Nonpublic School

Nonpublic schools that register with the NJDOE are eligible to receive services for technology, textbooks and nursing which are provided through the district of residence via state funding allocations based on enrollment. In order to operate a nonpublic school in New Jersey, the school must be a registered business and follow all state and local guidelines for operating a business, regardless of registration status.

To register a nonpublic school, complete the "New School Registration Form."

Once a nonpublic school is registered, a school code will be assigned to the nonpublic school. Nonpublic schools must annually complete the Nonpublic Enrollment Report located in the NJDOE Homeroom under NONPUBLIC ENROLLMENT to remain on the list of registered schools. The Nonpublic Enrollment Report opens in mid-November and closes in mid-January of each year and can only be accessed during this enrollment period.
