School Registration

Dear Parents,

We are honoured to welcome you and your child to the Huron-Perth Catholic District School community. Our Catholic schools are founded on a commi​tment to high standards for achievement with i​nclusive learning spaces that proclaim the glory of God.

Catholic education has been celebrated in Huron and Perth counties since 1848 with a tradition of excellence in learning and faith formation. Our classrooms are places of grace where students are nurtured to deepen their understanding of God’s love through prayer and the Sacraments.

The Huron-Perth Catholic School system has three main objectives:
​• To nurture a Christ-centred environment;
• To provide student-focused learning opportunities;
• To support the growth of the whole person.

There are few decisions more important than the selection of a quality Catholic school for your child. Our school communities firmly believe in the important bond between the home, school and parish to embrace the needs of your child. We thank you for the faith with which you place your trust in our system. ​

The Huron-Perth Catholic School system is rooted in progressive teaching and learning to develop creative and collaborative thinkers. Our students are supported with excellent resources, learning technologies and a 1:2 ratio of digital devices. We continuously make important investments in the professional learning of our educators so that the students enjoy excellent academic programming. We are proud of our inclusive focus so that the gifts of all students are valued and guided by an accessible Catholic curriculum.

We extend a warm welcome to you with every hope of great success for your family. We pray that God will bless you with peace and grace as you begin an important journey of faith and learning.

How Do I Register My Child for School?

Please visit your local Catholic school to register your child.  We look forward to welcoming you and the opportunity to meet your family. Our staff will be pleased to support any questions you may have about enrollment.

Please bring the following documents with you when you register:
​•  Baptismal Certificate
•  Birth Certificate
•  Evidence of Direction of Taxes to the Catholic School Board
•  Current Immunization Records

How Do I Redirect My Tax Support?​

The registration of your taxes for school support is an important declaration as a Catholic ratepayer.  We are proud of our Catholic schools and the strong foundation that our ancestors established in Huron and Perth counties in 1848.
The registration of your taxes informs the government that you are a Catholic ratepayer and supporter of Catholic schools.  This is also necessary for the election of Catholic Trustees as a voice for ratepayers who are responsible for the quality of Catholic teaching and learning.​

Child Care/Before-After School Care​

The Huron-Perth Catholic District School Board is pleased to partner with several Child Care Community Providers to offer a fee-based Extended Day, and Before and After School programs in our schools.  Please note that some schools do not have a program due to low interest by the families, however we survey families each and every year to determine if a program will be added.

Information regarding days and hours of operations and fees will be posted by the Community Child Care Providers as they become available.  Please visit your local school website for more information.

Child Care subsidies are also available. Please contact the Child Care Provider who can provide you with contact information to apply for these subsidies.

For more information about Child Care Programs in our schools, please contact Mary-Jo Drager at​​​​.
