Applying to high school
- Every neighbourhood high school with a designated attendance area has an optimal enrolment limit. You can find a list of high schools and their optimal enrolment limits at planning.epsb.ca/enrolment/pre-enrolment.
- The deadline to submit registration forms or enrolment passports to your preferred high school is April 15, 2013.
- After April 15, students who have not yet pre-enrolled may have limited options for available high schools.
- If student applications exceed the pre-enrolment limit of available space at any given high school, not all applicants can be accommodated. High schools that are oversubscribed will have a random selection conducted by district administration to determine which applicants from outside the designated attendance area can be accommodated.
- Random selections will be completed by April 17, 2013. Students who are not selected to attend the high school of their choice will be able to attend their designated attendance area high school or any other school with remaining space.
- Student course selections are confirmed only after the random selection process is completed.
- Students currently enrolled in language immersion or bilingual programs will be guaranteed admission to high schools that offer continuity of programming.
- Every attendance area high school offers enrichment programming through either the International Baccalaureate or Advanced Placement program.
- Contact your preferred high school or the high school in your neighbourhood for more information.
