Early Learning Registration Information
Please note: To attend kindergarten your child must be five years of age on or before March 1st of the school year currently enrolled. Your child could start kindergarten in September at the age of four, as long as he or she turns five on or before March 1st of the school year.
To provide your child with an optimal Pre-K experience, all children participate in a developmental 'screen' to help us learn about your child's strengths and abilities. Your child will be involved in play activities with one of the Pre-K therapists. This process helps us to determine if your child qualifies for:
- a funded placement (by Alberta Education) to access additional support for special needs, or
- a non-funded placement (a monthly fee required).
For more information about Pre-kindergarten, contact 780-459-7711. We encourage you to sign up for a screening appointment at an annual EXPO or by calling the District office at the above number.

Grades 1 - 12 Registration Information
Registrations are ongoing at Greater St. Albert Catholic Schools. For planning and funding purposes, student registration is encouraged by the end of March for the upcoming school year. We ask that all new students register at the school they will be attending as soon as possible to ensure a space in the program of their choice. For registration during the summer months, please contact the District Office as school offices are closed until the end of August. Registrations are accepted until September 30th. Please call your preferred school for registration and program information.
In most cases, students attend the designated school within the attendance boundary of where they live (see attendance areas). While we try to accommodate all students wishing to attend Greater St. Albert Catholic Schools, there are occasions when non-resident students are not accepted to the school of their choice. If the school is full to capacity or non-resident students require special education services, they may be offered a choice to attend another school and may be required to pay a cross-boundary transportation fee, if yellow bus service is required.
For pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students, and for students new to Greater St. Albert Catholic Schools (including homeschooling and cyber school), legal proof of the student's name, residency and guardianship will be required when you register. Please provide the school with photocopies of required documents, which will be placed in your child's Alberta Education Official Student Record.
Please review Documentation for New Students for specific requirements.
