How to enroll

Students cannot register themselves, and guidance counselors cannot register students. Parents must go to the PowerSchool Parent Portal to register (same area as “lunch account” or “pay fees”). A mandatory orientation will take place at Olentangy Orange High School on June 1 for Schoology students (5 p.m.) and APEX students (6 p.m.). At that time, students will receive their login credentials and passwords. 


Ohio State Tests

Ohio's State Tests will be required for students taking CP English 10 (July 14), Algebra 1 or Geometry (July 15), and U.S. Government or U.S. History (July 16). You will be asked at registration if you plan to take the test. If you answer no or leave that question blank, you will be expected to take the test in the late fall at your home high school. You may prepare for these tests by going to the OST Schoology test prep course. The access code for the course is 5DQHR-MQPW7. Please report to Shanahan Middle School between 7:30 a.m. - 7:45 a.m. on your test day.
