Students who are new to the Division register for school. Whether you're registering for this school year or next year, learn how to register online using the steps and the digital student registration form below.
Students currently enrolled at a Division school, including those moving to junior high and high school, pre-enrol on SchoolZone.
If your family is not yet living in the Edmonton area, or if you have recently arrived, please read the important information for families new to Edmonton.
Resident students can attend their designated school if they make their selection no later than 4 p.m. on March 22, 2024. In most cases, a resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian living in Edmonton who is not Roman Catholic.

You can still register your child after the deadline, or for immediate entry—we accept new registrations all year long. Contact your designated school if you have questions about late registration.
