How To Register

Grades 9 through 12 Registration Information:

The registration process occurs in February each year. We encourage attendance at our annual Open House on Thursday, February 15 at 7:00 p.m. with special presentations beginning at 6:00 p.m.

School Registration occurs in February...

It is important this process be completed by the end of February because programming decisions (e.g. number of courses offered) and staffing are affected. Please keep in mind that the number of course sections allocated are based on the number of student registration requests. A delayed registration may require students to only select courses where space is available.   Please read the information below as it pertains to your students' status when registering.

Registration Process:

To register your child, please complete a Registration Form and email to the school address found at the bottom of this page. The following documentation must be attached to complete the registration process:

  • Your child's 9 digit personal Manitoba Health information (9 digit personal identification number)
  • Name and phone number of an emergency contact
