Registration Information

Elementary School Registration

A Roman Catholic baptismal certificate for either the child or their parent is required to register for junior kindergarten to grade 8 ONLY. Members of Catholic Churches who recognize the Pope as the Head of the Church are eligible for admission.

For non-Catholic families, please contact your school principal for admission request details.

Secondary School Registration

Our high schools (grades 9 to 12) are open to ALL students. If you are registered in one of our Catholic elementary schools, your child will have the opportunity to connect with their local Catholic High School to learn about the school and courses. If you are not registered in our Catholic system, please contact the Catholic Education Centre (519-756-6369phone) or the Catholic High School closest to your residence for registration information.

Your Home School

Students must attend the school within the boundaries of their residence - their 'home' school. Students who wish to attend another school outside of their normal attendance boundary must apply for 'Out of Boundary'. The process begins at the 'home' school with both principals (home and out of boundary schools) and their respective school Superintendent.

To find out which school is your 'home' school, please use the Home School Locator found on the Transportation Services Brant Haldimand Norfolk's website.
