Now Open - Kindergarten Registration for 2021-2022

Posted On Tuesday January 12, 2021

Dear Parents and Guardians, 

Junior Kindergarten registration is now open at the Durham Catholic District School Board. You are invited to register your child for Kindergarten at one of our Durham Catholic schools across the region. Your child must be turning four years of age by December 31, 2021 in order to enrol. Online registration will take place January 11 – 22, 2021. Visit to register. For questions, email

Students who are eligible to attend Kindergarten Year One in September 2021 must register online and have a designated home school determined by home address. In accordance with the Durham Catholic District School Board Policy PO428 – Exception to School Attendance Areas, parents and guardians may have a need or legitimate reason for wanting a child to attend a school other than their designated home school. In such cases the online registration will be directed to the school they have requested. 

Admission to an out of boundary school is subject to approval by the designated home school principal and the out of boundary school principal. The application will initially be processed by the home school and then processed by the requested school. Applications will be approved in accordance with Board Policy and where space permits. Please note that the following schools are currently identified as having limited available space for 2021-2022: 


  • St. James Catholic School
  • St. Patrick Catholic School
  • St. Josephine Bakhita Catholic School


  • St. Kateri Tekakwitha Catholic School
  • St. Christopher Catholic School


  • St. John the Evangelist Catholic School
  • St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic School

As such, approval for exception to school attendance areas at these schools will be limited. Please note that transportation will not be provided for an out of boundary school. 

If you have questions, please contact the school and leave a message.
