Registration is ongoing throughout the school year. All families are encouraged to inquire.
St Damien school offers a full day kindergarten program. A child who turns five years old on or before December 31 is eligible to attend kindergarten in the fall of that same calendar year. For example, this means to register for kindergarten in September, a child must turn five years old on or before December 31 of that year. Your child’s birth certificate is required at the time of registration.
Grades 1 – 12
A child who turns six years old on or before December 31 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, children must turn six years old on or before December 31 of that 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. 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.
