​​​Every student who is new to the CBE needs to register at their designated school. Everyone has a designated school based on their home address and the program they choose. You can find your designated school by using our Find a School tool. Contact us for more information.

To register during a health emergency:

  1. Print and complete the Student Registration Form - Dependent Student including signatures, then scan or photograph a copy of the form and save it as a PDF.
    If you do not have access to a printer, complete the form (without signatures) and attach it as a PDF to an email with one of these statements:
    • “I declare that I am of the Roman Catholic Faith” or “I declare that I am not of the Roman Catholic Faith”, and
    • “I hereby represent that I have the legal authority to register the person named on the attached registration form. I declare the information that I have provided on this form is complete and accurate. I will immediately notify the school of any changes to the information on this form.”
  2. Scan a copy or take a photo of the child's proof of age and legal name document (e.g., birth certificate, passport, court document).
  3. Email the school and attach the registration form and the proof of age and legal name document.
    Use our find a school tool to determine your designated school.
    To find the email address of a school:
    • Find the school in the School Directory;
    • Click on the school name; and
    • copy the email address.
  4. The school will conditionally register the child providing the address is within the school’s designated boundaries and the student is age appropriate for the school.
    Once the health emergency is over, the school will email the parent / legal guardian who completed the form and ask that they bring the following documents to the school for verification purposes during the school office hours:
    • proof of address document with the parent’s / legal guardian’s / independent student’s name (e.g., utility bill, bank statement, income tax statement, federal correspondence, property tax assessment)
    • original of proof of age and legal name document which the school will compare to the emailed document
    • photo ID of the person who completed the form to verify their identity.

Once your school has registered the student, you will be able to create a MyCBE / PowerSchool account. This online account lets you register for services and pay fees.

General Registration Information

If you have questions for our school, contact us for information.

It is not possible to register at the school on holidays and during the summer. During the summer break you can find more information and dates on our Back to School page.

Non-Canadian students have a different registration process: please see our Non-Canadian Students page for details.​

How to Register for the TLC Program

For the 2020-21 school year TLC registration is ongoing. Schools will be hosting parent informational sessions during the month of January. Please check your designated TLC school’s website or call them for the date and time for this parent information session. Completed registration packages must be dropped off at your designated school by noon on February 11, 2020. Late registrations will not be included in the lottery for September 2020 placements and all registrations up to that date will be placed in the lottery according to the described categories.

For students that are new to the CBE and the student is not a Canadian Citizen, please note you must first attend the Kingsland Reception Centre for an initial assessment prior to registering for an Alternative Program.

How to Register

Last modified on

Out-of-Boundary Students

If you would like to transfer from one CBE school to another, please refer to the instructions in the request to transfer form.

When you are transitioning from elementary to middle school, you will be automatically registered at your designated school (according to your home address and program).​​​​​​​​​​

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.​​​​​​

Thank you volunteers for all your help in the 2019-2020 school year. The year would not have been the same without you. https://t.co/Pe1TYAYUV5
