Creating your schoology parent account

The resources on this page are designed to provide support to parents/guardians as they navigate Schoology.  In order to access Schoology, all parents/guardians will need to register for a Schoology account using the Parent Access Code received for their child.  While Schoology is able to be utilized in all browsers, it does tend to work most smoothly in Chrome.

To sign-up for a Schoology parent account:

  1. Go to www.schoology.com
  2. Click "Sign Up" at the top of the page and choose "Parent."
  3. Enter your Parent Access Code. This is a 12-digit code in xxxx-xxxx-xxxx format that you will receive. 
  4. Fill out the form with your information.
  5. Click "Register" to complete.

When you use a Parent Access Code to create an account, you are automatically associated to your child. Parent Access Codes are unique to each student, but can be used to make multiple parent accounts. You can also add additional children to your account using the "Add Child" button.
