  • At the Regular Board Meeting of February 22, 2022 Trustees approved the following regarding the Pope Francis Boundary Review:

    Implementation of an Enrolment Cap at Pope Francis to reduce future enrolment, as detailed below:

    1. Effective immediately, Pope Francis will not accept any new registrations in SK-Grade 8.

    2. Any new students (SK-8) wishing to enroll from the Pope Francis attendance area will be redirected to St. Stephen, with transportation provided

    3. Effective for the 2022/23 school year, new registrations (JK) at Pope Francis will be limited to 101 Junior Kindergarten students each year.

    The above process remains in place for the 2023/24 school year. Your child’s JK registration will be reviewed by the Pope Francis Administrative team. JK registration will be included in a lottery process.

  • St. Theresa of Lisieux Catholic High School is a capped school, consequently, a different registration procedure is required. Please visit the school website for information on the criteria and process of admission which is posted yearly in November.

  • St. Robert Catholic High School is also a capped school, for which registration is contingent on the school enrolment capacity being reached. Please submit an online registration and you will be informed if the capacity limit has been exceeded.

  • Secondary registrations submitted during July and August will be reviewed by schools once staff returns to work during the last week of August, and documents may be provided to the school at that time.
