Many of our schools are open to all students residing in the City of Toronto. The Community School Locator
is an interactive program that lets you pinpoint your community school and closest Extended French and French Immersion schools the student is eligible to attend, based upon their home address and grade.
Although we make every effort to ensure the information within School Locator is as current and accurate as possible, we do not assume liability for unintentional errors, omissions or incomplete information, or decisions made by users on the basis of this information. Parents are encouraged to contact the schools listed to confirm enrolment eligibility before taking any action based on this information.
Please review the information below when considering placement in a Toronto Catholic District school.
Beginning January 8, 2014, the Toronto Catholic District School Board is pleased to offer parents an option to complete the Student Application Form online at https://soar.tcdsb.org
Our form has been re-designed to be convenient, concise and helpful utilizing guiding questions and on-line assistance to guide parents through the completion of the Student Application Form.
Our form is available to parents in English and the following languages: Arabic, Chinese, Czech, French, Italian, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Tagalog, Tamil, Ukrainian and Vietnamese. Parents are required to register providing a valid e-mail address, password and their language preference. On occasion, the parent may need to pose questions to their community school or the Admissions and Placement department. The parent may exit the Student Application Form at any time and be assured that the information they entered has been saved and can be accessed when they return to the form.
Based upon the student’s address, the form will notify the parent of their community school, transportation eligibility, and fixed boundaries. All elementary schools have fixed boundaries for the Full Day Kindergarten (FDK) program, and several schools have fixed boundaries in place from Junior Kindergarten through to grade 8. Parents are encouraged to apply to their community school, and if needed, complete the Out of Boundary Request section. The child will be placed on a waiting list at the out-of-boundary school and the parent will be notified if space is available.
Upon completion, the parent will be invited to book an appointment with the school. Completing the form does not guarantee registration. An appointment is necessary for the school to review the Student Application Form with the parent, review original documentation, and discuss any educational and medical concerns the parent may have. An e-mail will be sent to the parent and school confirming the appointment, including a list of original documents the parent must bring to the appointment. Where possible, we invite the parent to bring their child to the appointment.
Student registrations for the 2014-2015 school year will also be accepted in paper format. We encourage parents to complete their child’s application on-line. If you do not have access to a computer, please consider using the computer at the public library or from the home of a friend.
