Welcome to Brewster!

The Brewster Central School District welcomes all school-age students who reside in the district’s boundaries. To verify a property’s assigned school district, please visit the Putnam County’s Office of Real Property Tax Services website. To register a new student, please contact the District Registrar.  Appointments are required, and paperwork must be completed prior to the registration appointment.  The registration office is located at the District Office, 30 Farm to Market Road, Brewster.

Registering a child for kindergarten requires different paperwork. Please visit the J.F.K. Elementary School web page for more information.

PLEASE NOTE:  Registration is a two-step process. After meeting with the District Registrar, the parent/guardian and student visit the school building registrar where the child will attend.


The following documents are required to register a student into the Brewster Central School District:

Completed District Enrollment Packet
The student enrollment packet includes a checklist of items to bring with you to your registration appointment. Please complete one form per child. Enrollment forms are available on the district Registration Forms page.

Proof of Residency
All new students entering the Brewster Central School District must provide the proper documentation to establish residency. The documents provided must always state the student and parent/guardian’s physical address (they must reside together).  A post office box is never an acceptable address for the purpose of determining residency.  In lieu of a lease, a Landlord Affidavit accompanied by the most recent utility bill are acceptable.

Birth Certificate
You must provide your child’s original birth certificate with a raised seal, if applicable.

Proof of Immunization
