Registration is ongoing throughout the school year. The child’s birth certificate is required and one parent’s Catholic baptismal certificate is requested to be presented at the time of registration. Parents of students not previously registered at any grade level should call the school for an appointment to register.
Designated Boundaries for Schools
The Calgary Catholic School District has designated boundaries for all schools. CCSD uses boundaries strategically to ensure optimal student populations that support viable programming across the district. It is the expectation that students will attend their designated school. Please be aware that school attendance boundaries can and do change to accommodate factors including changing demographic information, the opening or closing of a school, to relieve overcrowding in schools, etc.
New Students to Canada
Students who are born outside of Canada register through the St. John Reception Centre. It is located at 15-12 Street NW and the phone number is 403-500-2007. Students whose first language is not English may be required to complete an English language proficiency assessment. District interpreter services for this appointment are available upon request at no cost to the family. To book an appointment please call 403-500-2007.
Returning Grade 12 Students
Consistent with its authority under Section 45(4) of the School Act, the Calgary Catholic School District (CCSD) identifies St. Anne Academic Centre as the designated high school to which students requesting a fourth year of high school in the district are directed. St. Anne Academic Centre provides direct instruction classes, self-directed studies, on-line learning opportunities, work experience and apprenticeship programming, and home schooling options for students. Students must be under the age of 20 by September 1st of the year they seek enrolment at St. Anne. Recognizing individual differences, St. Anne strives to meet the needs of students with flexibility and innovation in a safe and nurturing environment that provides individualized support for each student. All fourth year high school students are expected to attend St. Anne Academic Centre if they wish to enroll in an additional year.
However, when a returning Grade 12 student has been involved in and can benefit from the continuation of specialized programming, a student’s local school, in consultation with Calgary Catholic’s Instructional Services Department, may develop an alternative plan to meet the student’s needs through continuation at their local high school. The option to remain for a fourth year at a student’s local high school is only available in specific circumstances. The opportunity to remain at the local high school is granted at the sole discretion of the Calgary Catholic School District. Students access this option through an application process determined at the local school level. The development of a plan for student success during a fourth year may involve:
- continuation of specialized programming;
- the use of a contract or specific instructional plan;
- the development of a collaborative Individual Program Plan (IPP);
- articulation of clear expectations, including processes for direction to other district programs, including St. Anne when necessary
