Pre-K - Grade 4 Registration for 2018 - 2019!
Posted on January 12th, 2018
Elk Island Catholic Schools uses an Online Registration System to collect and process student registrations. If you are looking to register your child for Pre-Kindergarten (Pre-K), Kindergarten (ECS) or for Grades 1 - 4 for the 2018/2019 school year, we ask you to register online starting January 15, 2018, as preference to programming is on a first come first serve basis. Registration opens at 6:00 pm.
Please note, if registering for ECS (Kindergarten) you will have 4 choices: AM, PM, all day Monday/Wednesday or all day Tuesday/Thursday. Please choose your preferred time slot for the ECS program. Depending on interest, room and resources, not all options can be offered at one school; however, we are collecting parent interest data to help determine the programming options to offer. This is in accordance with the EICS Board of Trustees decision to support “Parent Choice” in Kindergarten programming.
Also, please note that if you are not sure of which school is your designated school, please click on the link below to see the boundary map:
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, 2019. Pre-K programs are voluntary and designed for children who will be four years of age or three years of age (with PUF funding) before January 1, 2019. 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 the 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.
