Prince of Peace Restricted Enrolment
The following explains the pre-registration process for Prince of Peace School, such as being able to register your child after their first birthday.
Student Pre-registration Information
All Calgary Catholic elementary schools offer a half-day kindergarten program and depending on total kindergarten enrolment, we may offer a choice of morning or afternoon classes on a first-come, first-served basis.
The Alberta Government has made changes regarding kindergarten entry age for the 2020-2021 school year; children must turn five years on or before Dec 31, 2020. The amendments to the Education Act are in effect for all Alberta school boards as of Sept 2020.
Grades 1 – 9
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. For example, this means to register for Grade 1 in September 2017, children must turn five years old on or before March 1, 2017. The child’s birth certificate is required and one parent’s Catholic baptismal certificate is requested to be presented at the time of registration. 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 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.
School Attendance Areas
parents and guardians who are considering a move to a new residence to review
the designated attendance area for Catholic Schools in that community.
All Calgary Catholic schools have attendance areas which identify the schools
in each community where students are eligible to register. Students are
expected to attend the designated school for their community unless they decide
to register at a program of choice school such as French Immersion or Fine
Arts. For a list of programs, please click

transportation costs based on residence of the family attending.
