DBE Enrollment Information

Student Enrollment for Kingsport City Schools Students 


D-B EXCEL is a program of choice for KCS students.
Please note that your child must be a: 
  • Rising 9-12th grader
  • Current Kingsport City Schools student OR have the intentions of enrolling in Kingsport City Schools upon acceptance to D-B EXCEL
Current KCS students may submit their completed application to their school counselor.


New students are those who have never attended Kingsport City Schools or those who have moved away and did not complete the prior school year with us. Homeschooled students and tuition students are eligible to apply.

Students that do not currently attend KCS will register at Dobyns-Bennett (main campus). If interested in applying to D-B EXCEL, they will fill out the application at the main campus when they are completing the KCS registration process. These applicants are required to attend an Open House or schedule a tour at DBE so the student/parent can learn more about our program. Please call 378-2185 to schedule a tour.
