Regular Program Registration​

To register a student please follow the Registration instructions outlined on the CBE website. 

Registration at Calgary Board of Education (CBE) schools is not determined on a first come, first served basis. Registration and admission to schools in CBE are governed by the Education Act and Administrative Regulation 6090 | Child and Student Registration and Admission.

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 follow the registration process outlined on the New to Canada page.​

​How to Register for Alternative Programs

An alternative education program emphasizes a particular language (CBE currently offers French, Spanish, Mandarin and German), subject matter or a particular teaching philosophy.

Registration Process

Please visit the ​Alternative Program Registration page for more details on how to register for an alternative program.

For students that are new to CBE and not Canadian citizens, please follow the registration process outlined on the New to Canada page.​

If you cannot find the answers you are looking for on the CBE website, please connect with our office. ​

How to Register

Determinations of Designated and Out-of-Boundary Students

Every child in Calgary has a designated school based on their home address and the program they choose. You can apply to attend any school, even if it is not your designated school, although application does not guarantee acceptance. Each principal determines if their school has capacity to accept out-of-boundary students. At Woodman School, students join as continuous registrations from the following feeder schools:

Regular Program
(Grade 7-9)
Haysboro School
Chinook Park School (Entry Point: Grade 7)
Continuing French Program  
(Grade 5-9) 
Janet Johnstone (Entry Point: Grade 5)
Chinook Park School (Entry Point: Grade 7)
Late French Program
(Grade 7) 
All schools south of Glenmore Trail and west of Macleod Trail


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

School principals, in consultation with the Area 6 office, make decisions in a team-based approach, for all Transfer Request Forms that have been collected by the stated due date and decisions will be communicated back to families by early-mid May.  As indicated in the Transfer Request Form, priority may be given to requests for families who already have a sibling registered at the school for the upcoming school year.   Response times may be dependent upon the timing and release of school budgets.

​​​​​​​​​​What School is Next and Transferring Between CBE Schools

Every CBE student has a designated school based on their home address. When you transition from elementary to middle school, or from middle school to high school, you will be automatically registered at your designated school according to your home address. To find your designated school, use our Find a School tool. 

​If you are interested in attending a school other than your designated school, visit the Transfers webpage for transfer information. Please note that some schools are quite full and not able to accept all transfer requests. ​
