Admissions & Registrations

We Believe that each child is a gift from God and has the potential to grow, to develop, and to contribute.  Each person is worthy of our respect, is to be included, and is to be treated fairly and with dignity.
When Can I Register My Child?
Parents may register their child for the upcoming school year and/or semester (secondary) at any time during the school year (September-June), Schools open one week prior to the beginning of the school year for registering students who moved to the area during the summer months. Registration for Junior and Senior Kindergarten takes place in October/November. Please call your local Catholic school in advance to confirm office hours and document requirements.
Where Do I Get Information on Transportation and School Boundaries?
The Bruce-Grey Catholic District School Board is a member of a Transportation Consortium along with the Bluewater District School Board. Information on transportation and school boundaries can be found by contacting the Student Transportation Services Consortium of Grey-Bruce (click button below), or your local school.
What School Should My Child Attend?
For more information on how to register your child, please contact the school in your area.
The Bruce-Grey Catholic District School Board is proud of our Catholic tradition of excellence in education.  We warmly welcome your child and family to our school communities and look forward to working with you in providing the best education for your child.

Kindergarten Registration Clinics are held in the Fall of the year for the upcoming school year.  

Early registration gives you time to learn what you can do to help your child get ready for school.  At registration, you and your child can meet school staff, visit the school, and learn about community resources in your area. 

New research tells us that the first five years of life are key to children’s healthy brain development and learning. In fact, by age three a child’s brain is twice as active as an adult’s. Make the most of this important time! Spend time talking to, listening to, and playing with your child. Help a new generation of children spread their wings and soar through life.

All students, regardless of religion, are welcome in our secondary schools in accordance with the following conditions:

  • They are not applying as a result of a dispute with any other educational authority.
  • They agree to participate in Religious Education and Religious activities as appropriate
  • They complete a positive interview with the school principal at which time the vision of the Bruce-Grey Catholic District School Board will be explained.
  • They sign a contract that outlines these conditions.
  • To register your child, call the school directly.
