BGCDSB is happy to offer an Online Registration platform for registering new students to the board. COVID-19 has required schools to limit the number of visitors to the building and our Online Registration platform gives families the opportunity to register their child for the upcoming school year from the convenience of their own home.


*Schools are now open. To register for the current school year (2022-2023) please contact the school directly. Registrations for the 2023-2024 school year can be completed online*
