- A student must be at least 6 years old as of December 31 to start Grade 1 in the fall of that Grade 1 year. This means that a 5-year-old student may start Grade 1 if the student will turn 6 years old on or before December 31 of that Grade 1 year.
- Please contact the school in your attendance area to register for Grade 1. The school will require you to provide a copy of your student’s birth certificate and proof of your address. The school will also request you to provide a copy of your student’s or your Catholic baptismal certificate if applicable.
- Parents of Catholic students who live inside a school’s attendance area and are already enrolled in kindergarten do not need to re-register their students for Grade 1 in the same school. Parents of all other students may be required to re-register their students for Grade 1 because we cannot guarantee kindergarten to Grade 1 advancement in the same school for non-Catholic students and students who live outside a school’s attendance area.
Registration for Non-Catholic Students
We are pleased to enroll non-Catholic students in our schools when we have sufficient resources and facilities to do so. Parents of non-Catholic students should understand that we are required to prioritize the enrolment of Catholic students each school year. This means that we cannot guarantee the advancement of non-Catholic students from one grade to the next in the same school or from elementary to junior high and high school.
Parents can register students in French Immersion or Spanish Bilingual in Grade 1 or upon successful completion of a language proficiency exam. Visit our Languages page for program information.
