You can register your child at one of our schools, from junior kindergarten to grade 12, at any time.

Come to our Open House events or ask the school directly for a private visit. To learn more about our Open House events dates and times, please consult our Portes ouvertes pages for either elementary schools or high schools.

If you have any questions or are having difficulty registering your child online, please email  cscdgr@cscdgr.education.


To register for junior kindergarten, the student must be 4 years old or older on December 31st of the current school year.

Home address

The student must reside in the school attendance zone.


To register in an elementary school, the student must meet one of the following criteria:

  • One of the parents or legal guardians is a taxpayer contributing to the French-language Catholic education system of Ontario; or
  • One of the parents or legal guardians was baptised under the Catholic Church or one of the religious traditions it recognises.

Any student can be registered to one of our high schools, as long as the fact that it provides a French Catholic education is recognized. It is also expected that the student will participate in the school's pastoral activities as well as the religion-related courses required to obtain the Ontario high school diploma.



Under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, you can register your child at a French-language school is you are a:

  • Parent, Canadian citizen, who's first language learnt and understood is french;
  • Parent, Canadian citizen, who received an elementary education in French in Canada; or
  • Canadian citizen, parent of at least one child who is receiving or has received an elementary or secondary education in a French establishment.

That being said, Ontario's Education Law specifies that any parent or legal guardian can submit a registration application. It is a simple process including a meeting between members of the school's administration and the family.
