Online Registration

Kindergarten Registration (including French Immersion Program)

For detailed information about our Kindergarten programs, please visit our Welcome to Kindergarten page.

Elementary (Grades 1-8) registration uses the same 'tool' and is continuous throughout the school year.

The Board utilizes an online K-8 Registration tool that will make the process more convenient for parents. Please follow our simple 7 Step Registration Process. Each 'Step' will provide you with details about what is required. The actual registration process takes about 20 minutes to complete. You can 'Save' anytime and login later to finish or upload required documents. All the information that you have entered will still be there. Just remember to choose the 'Save' button before exiting.


  • If you are registering for a school that is not your home school (meaning that it is not the Catholic school in your immediate area) please begin registration process by picking your home school. You will be able to fill out an “Out of Boundary” form during the process.
  • If you are registering for our French Immersion program, please select the French Immersion School closest to your home from the list when using the online registration tool. To learn more about French Immersion visit our French Immersion info page.
  • A Driver’s License cannot be used as proof of address. You will need to provide a utility bill, property tax form, lease agreement, etc. during the registration process.
