Preparing for High School

What School is Next 

Every child in Calgary has a designated school based on their home address and the program they choose. If you are going to be attending your designated school in your current program, registration is done automatically through your current school’s main office. You can apply to attend any school, even if it is not your designated one. Each principal determines if their school has capacity to accept out-of-boundary students, usually after enrolment numbers are determined. For more information, contact the school you are interested in attending. Transportation services may not be available if you are attending a non-designated school. 

Visit the CBE website to see when other schools are having open houses, should you want to learn more about your next school.
