NEW! Register online through our new pre-registration process:

The CDSBEO now offers an option to pre-register your child through an online process. Once complete, you will need to visit the school to provide original copies of any required documentation (birth certificate, proof of address, and baptismal certificate OR Form for Request of Admission of Non-Catholic Students).

PLEASE NOTE: The online pre-registration process includes a survey for data collection on behalf of the Ministry of Education. This data will be used to assist with planning, coordinating and improving the programs and services for families and young children in your community.

Alternatively, a pdf version of our registration form is available under Resource Downloads on this page (this form may be completed electronically by typing in the fields before printing). If you choose not to register via the online process, this form should be submitted to your local Catholic school, in addition to the documentation listed below.
