Registration Information

Kindergarten Registration

(This information also applies to Grade 1-7 students)
Registration for 2016/2017 will be accepted during office hours (8:30 a.m. - 3:15 p.m.) Nov 2, 2015 until Jan 29, 2016.

Parents are strongly encouraged to register their child as early as possible to ensure a space.

The first step for everyone is to register with your neighbourhood English catchment school - regardless of whether you plan to send your child there.  You can discover where your neighbourhood English catchment school is by going to:

Completed registrations must be accompanied by verification of the student's original birth certificate, immunization records, and proof of catchment area residency (Property Tax, Rental Agreement, Hydro, Cable bills).  Children who turn 5 years old by December 31 of the year of entry (2011) are eligible to enter Kindergarten.  Students born outside of Canada, must first register with their parent or legal guardian at the District Reception and Placement Centre (DRPC) before they can be accepted into the catchment school.  More specific information about registration procedures can be found on the general registration page at

Cross boundary applications
Parents may apply cross-boundary to another school, but these applications will only be considered after all in-catchment applicants have been placed.

Vancouver schools will begin accepting cross-boundary applications from February 1 to February 29, 2016.  Families who submit a cross-boundary application during this time will be informed of their child’s status by March 30th.
