When registering your child, please note the following process:

  1. Use the School Locator Tool to determine your catchment school
  2. Complete the online registration request form

The school district recognizes that personal circumstances may make it difficult for some individuals to complete the registration process. Please discuss any unique circumstances with the school principal when you are contacted. We welcome all new students and we are pleased to assist in any way we can.
Please see below for important information regarding the registration process. If you have any questions, please contact your catchment school or the school district at 604-596-7733.


Children who turn five-years-old before Jan. 1, 2024 are eligible to begin school in September 2023.
The same documents listed above for new students must also be provided to register a student for kindergarten.

SAIL distance learning is currently only available for secondary SAIL students. SAIL elementary is a blended learning program where students attend 4 days a week at Brookside Elementary.

For more information on registering for the Surrey Academy of Innovative Learning (SAIL) please click here.

Specialty and Choice Programs

Surrey Schools offers a number of "choice" programs that challenge students and enhance special skills or subscribe to certain philosophies. Students still receive the regular B.C. school curriculum, but also have an opportunity to extend their understanding and experience.

You do not need to live near the school or in the district to enroll.

Kindergarten registration in the four most popular programs (French Immersion, Intensive Fine Arts, Montessori and Traditional) is done through an online lottery application.
