School Registration



If any of the following apply, please visit the Reception Centre:


  • Students new to Canada (residing in Canada less than 6 months)
  • Students transferring to YRDSB from home schooling in Ontario
  • Students transferring to YRDSB from other boards in Ontario/other provinces with time-sensitive documents (e.g., work permits, refugee claimants)
  • Returning students from outside Canada


All other students should register as follows:


Step 1: Identify your Home School

Home schools are determined by your home address and school boundaries. You may be eligible to attend an alternate school through the transfer process initiated through your home school. Decisions regarding transfers are at the discretion of the Principal and Superintendent, based on availability of programs and accommodations. Transportation for transfer students is the responsibility of the parents. For more information about transfers, see Policy 108 Student Accommodation Attendance Areas Student Transfers.


Step 2: Contact your Home School and Set Up a Registration Appointment

Expect to spend up to one hour at the school for registration. Please note that late August and early September are extremely busy times for registration and wait times and appointments may take longer. Be sure to ask your school any questions regarding formation and supporting documents required for registration.


Step 3: Download and Complete Forms, Collect Information and Supporting Documents Required for Registration at Your School

Information required for registration includes:  


Step 4: Attend your Appointment
At your appointment, your home school will help you identify any special programs that may be suitable to your child, and will help facilitate the registration process. Students registering for secondary schools will select their courses online. Information about this process will be provided at the time of your appointment and is also available on our website – see the link to Guidance.

Summer Hours for Registration:

Elementary school offices are closed during July and August, so you will need to contact the Community Education Centre in your area to set up your registration appointment. Secondary schools are open during July and August for registration.  Each school schedule varies, so please contact your school to verify hours of operation.
