Student Enrolment Priorities

As a growing district, several of our schools are frequently at capacity. In the event there are more students than a school can accommodate, student enrolment will be applied based on the following:

  1. re-enrolling students
  2. a catchment area child who has a sibling currently attending the school
  3. a catchment area child
  4. a non-catchment child who has a sibling currently attending the school
  5. a non-catchment child
  6. a non-school district child

To reflect newly introduced legislation of “Bill 40 - 2023” BC School Amendment Act 2023, Indigenous rights holders will have priority access to their respective Nation’s school of choice.

These enrolment priorities apply to all new registrations, transfer requests, elementary to middle and middle to secondary transitions.

*Please note that for École John Stubbs, the elementary and middle schools are separate. If you have a child in École John Stubbs Middle School or have a child who will be in the middle school the following September and are registering another child in École John Stubbs Elementary School, enrolment priorities #2 or #4 will not apply.

In the event space is limited and a middle or secondary school cannot accept all non-catchment student requests, priority will be given to those non-catchment students already in the determined pathway of schools, over other non-catchment, non-pathway students. The student enrolment priorities apply to new registrations, transfer requests and student transitions between elementary and middle, and middle and high school for both English and French programs.
