How to Register

Students are offered an opportunity to register at the Children’s Village School through the unique setting placement process. This consultative process involving parents and guardians, your child’s community school and the area learning team is based on documented educational needs and current assessment information regarding a student’s complex social, emotional and learning profile.

For parents and guardians who are considering whether their student may benefit from the therapeutic programming offered at CVS, the first step would always be to connect with administration at your designated CBE community school to discuss your child’s learning needs. The community school will collaborate and may implement additional supports and services to help foster student success. Should there continue to be evidence that a student requires more intensive supports, alternative educational placements may be explored. Please see the CBE website to access descriptions of the range of specialized programs and unique settings available within CBE.

When a student is offered an educational placement at Children's Village School, parents and/or guardians have the option of accepting or declining the unique setting placement. Once placement has been accepted, staff from Children’s Village School will call you to book a tour and intake meeting, where a supported transition plan will be developed.

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. To find out what your designated school is, use our Find a School​ ​tool. 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.​​​​​​
