New Student Registration


Schools start accepting new student registration packages for the next school year on February 3, 2020

Choosing a School

Students are guaranteed entry to their designated school if registered (new students) or pre-enrolled (current students) no later than April 15, 2020. Use the Find a School tool to find your designated school.

A student may also attend any other school in the Division, as long as:

  • the school has available space
  • the student meets any entrance criteria of that school

If the number of students who want to attend a school or program exceeds the available space, applicants from outside the school’s designated attendance area will be chosen by random selection.

New Student Registration Process for 2020-21

New student registrations will now be submitted online.

If you have already submitted your new student registration form for the 2020-21 school year, you do not need to register again. 

Schools will no longer accept printed registrations. Do not drop off registration forms at the school.

You can register at any of our schools throughout the year, but submitting a registration package after the deadline of April 15, 2020 may limit your options to schools with available space. Learn more about registration dates and deadlines.
