Parent Infinite Campus
Parent Infinite Campus

If you do NOT have a parent portal account, please visit your student’s school. If you have more than one student, please visit the oldest student’s school. You will have to show picture ID and sign for the activation key. This is only used one time to create the account. The activation key is under YOUR name and not your students. Please verify that YOUR name is at the top of the Person Summary Report that the school will give you with your activation code. If the Person Summary report has your students’ name at the top, please ask for YOUR code. The code is unique to each person. Each parent should have their own portal account. If you have more than one student enrolled in our schools, you will be able to see each of the student’s information with this one code.
