To register your school for Student Activities, complete the registration form and return it to the South-Central Regional Office via email, fax, or standard mail. The preferred method is via email attachment.
When do I register for Student Activities?
Student Activities registration takes place at the beginning of the school year, August—October. During this time, each school should register for all the events they wish to participate in that school year. All registration is first-come, first-serve, based on when school registration forms and fees are received in the regional office. The early bird deadline is October 1.

What are the benefits of Chairing or Hosting an event?
When you serve as Chairperson or Host for an event, your school registration fee is waived for that event. For more information and list of additional benefits, visit the Student Activities Registration page.
How does ACSI determine dates for events?
Although some events must be completed during specific time periods, a host site may choose a date that works well for their facility as long as it does not conflict with other events in their area. We also avoid scheduling any events during times that schools are typically closed, such as the weeks before and after Easter.
