School Catchment and Home Schools
Please register directly with your home school whether it be online or in-person. If you are uncertain of the school boundaries (also known as catchment areas) please contact the nearest school or scroll to the bottom of our School Catchment Locator and enter in your address. It is strongly recommended that you register at your earliest convenience. Online registrations that are out of catchment will be transferred to the correct school.
- If a family would like a variance from their home catchment school:
- register at the home catchment school online or in-person with an appointment
