  2. Proof of guardianship (as shown on child’s birth certificate, or other appropriate legal documentation such as landed immigrant document or guardianship order). 

  3. Proof of citizenship for both the parent and student (Canadian birth certificate, citizenship card, passport, landed immigrant document, permanent resident card, enhanced driver’s license or enhanced identification card). 

  4. Proof of residence (e.g., ordinarily resident) of parent/guardian in BC: 

    1. BC driver’s license, BC Services Card, BCID or BC Care Card of parent/legal guardian; and                       

    2. A combination of other supporting documentation such as ownership/long-term lease of dwelling, vehicle registration, employment within community, Canadian income tax record, etc.

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
