What if I want to apply for a District program?

Parents must register at their neighbourhood catchment school before applying for District Programs. A lottery draw process is used for our District Programs. The lottery draw registration process for District programs opens January 20, 2020. For specific registration information, contact the school and/or attend an information night (dates below). By late February you should hear back whether you have a space in the school or program. If you have not heard back by mid-February, please contact the school Principal of your neighborhood catchment school and they will help you find out about your child’s status.

What if I want to apply to

a school in a different neighbourhood catchment?

 If you are interested in having your child attend a school that is not your catchment school, then you will need to apply through the cross-boundary application process. Applications will be reviewed by the requested school beginning February 1, 2019. The cross-boundary application deadline is February 2020. Cross-boundary applications will only be considered once all catchment students have been accommodated.  Application does not guarantee acceptance.
