Acorn via MyStudent (Student Fees)

Acorn via MyStudent (Student Fees) Set-Up Steps

Interested in paying for things such as students fees and field trips online in the comfort of your own home with a credit card?  Then follow the steps below to get started.  By setting up an account in MyStudent, you will be ahead of the game for your child’s middle and high school years, as this program becomes fully functional in 6th grade.

Acorn is a secure, streamlined system (replacing SchoolPay) and enables parents to add school purchases to their shopping cart for multiple children at different schools, and complete transactions through the use of a credit card. This does NOT include lunch payments.

Step 1: Set up a MyStudent Parent Account
*In order to use Acorn (see Step 2) you need to give the system 24 hours to link your MyStudent account to the Acorn system*

PDF How-To


Step 2: Student Fees/Acorn (24 hours after initial set up in MyStudent)

  • Go to
  • In the blue Parent Account Activation box, select “Continue”
  • Enter the email address associated with your myStudent account and select “send email”
  • This will generate an email that prompts you to activate your account
  • Open your email and click the link
  • Continue by creating your password and activating your account
  • Once this is completed, you can view fees and items that can be purchased

Please note, this will NOT change the process for putting funds on your student’s meal account. In order to do so you will still go through MySchool Bucks.

Step 3: Ready to Use

Example of what you will see when you sign in:









You will then sign into Acorn, using the e-mail address associated with your MyStudent
Parent Portal account

  • Select your child’s name from the tab next to the summary tab
  • Scroll down to additional items and select the item you are wanting to pay for
  • Follow check out directions (very similar to online shopping)
