Registration Procedures

ELEMENTARY School Admissions Criteria

Nipissing-Parry Sound Catholic District School Board (NPSCDSB) elementary schools are open to all students meeting the criteria for admission.

All NPSCDB elementary schools have fixed attendance boundaries. The Eligibility Query School Locator is an interactive program that identifies your elementary community school based on your residential address and grade, and identifies your closest English and Early French Immersion school based on your residential address and grade entered.

The Board makes every effort to accommodate students at the school of their choice. Placement will be offered based on the physical capacity of the school, local demand and program availability. Please be advised that living within a school's fixed attendance boundary does not guarantee placement. When placement is not possible in the school requested, students will be offered a placement at the nearest NPSCDSB school with space and program availability. Transportation may be provided in accordance with our Transportation Policy .

Children turning the age of 4 by December 31 of the current year are eligible to register in September of that same year.

The following original documents (for your child) are required upon registration:

  1. Birth Certificate
  2. Proof of Catholicity (one of the following):
