2017 - 2018 Registration is now open!

Elk Island Catholic Schools is now using an Online Registration System to collect and process student registrations. If you are looking to register your child for Kindergarten (ECS) for the 2017/18 school year, you are encouraged to register online starting January 16, 2017 as preference to morning (AM) or afternoon (PM) programming is on a first come first serve basis.

This Online Registration process allows parents to submit registration packages for children to the school at their convenience and helps ensure that registration packages contain all the necessary information for processing.  Collecting this information online saves time for everyone. 

ECS programs are voluntary and designed for children who will be five years of age before January 1, 2018. When registering, please attach a copy of your child's birth certificate or other government-issued proof of age.  Catholic parents are requested to provide a copy of their child's Baptismal Certificate.  Non-Catholic families are welcome and will be put on a waiting list pending approval.

Non-Catholic families wanting a faith-based Catholic education for their children are invited to contact Our Lady of the Angels Parish office at 780-998-3288 to acquire information about the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) and the Rite of Christian Initiation for Children (RCIC) programs.
