Calgary Catholic is proud to provide a complete range of programs, services and exciting learning opportunities to enhance the knowledge, talents and abilities of your child. Contact your designated school to register.
All Calgary Catholic elementary schools offer a half-day kindergarten program, while select schools offer a full-day kindergarten program. Depending on total kindergarten enrolment, schools may also offer a choice of morning or afternoon classes on a first-come, first-served basis. A child who turns four years old on or before March 1 is eligible to attend kindergarten in the fall of that same calendar year. Contact your local elementary school or visit our kindergarten web-page for more information.
A child who turns five years old on or before March 1 is eligible to register for Grade 1 in that fall of that same calendar year.
Note: Resident Catholic students transitioning from Kindergarten to Grade 1 in the same school do not need to re-register for Grade 1. Non-resident students need to inquire with the principal of the school to determine if they will be able to register for Grade 1 based on available room and resources. Parents/legal guardians of students not previously registered at any grade level should call the school for an appointment to register.
Language program registration
Children may enter any one of our language programs in kindergarten or Grade 1.
Visit our languages webpage for more information.
Currently two elementary schools and two junior high schools offer a modified calendar.
Visit our Year-Round Education webpage for more information.
Diverse learning needs
Students with diverse learning needs should register at their designated school, which is a parent/legal guardian’s first contact for specialized programming information, support and consultation.
New to Canada?
Students who are born outside of Canada register through the St. John Reception Centre.
It is in the best interests of students to transfer at the end of a school year. Students who transfer into a school mid year or, mid semester may be disadvantaged for several reasons:
- The courses they want may be full or not offered
- It may be too late to receive credits in a course
- The order and pacing of outcomes varies
- Schools may have organizational differences, for instance, quarter systems
- Special education opportunities vary
- Specialty programs vary (e.g. IB program or AP program)
Should a transfer be unavoidable, please begin the transfer by contacting your current school. Next make a call to the designated school to schedule an appointment. The following documentation must be presented prior to formal registration:
- Child’s birth certificate
- Proof of address (utility bill/offer to purchase, etc.)
- Recent transcript/report card
- A Roman Catholic Baptismal certificate (for child or one parent) is requested to be presented at the time of registration
Note: Foreign born students, new to our district, will need to schedule an appointment at the St. John Reception Centre and present appropriate documentation. If applicable, ELL level and assistance will be determined at that point.
Returning Grade 12s
