School Registration

Please confirm first if you are required to register through the Reception Centre and follow the appropriate process. 

Families who do not need to register through the Reception Centre can send a completed Elementary Student Registration Form (Grades 1-8) or Secondary School Student Registration Form (Grades 9-12) to the school email address (available on the school websites).  Online Kindergarten registration is also available.​​
