​​​​​​​​​​​​​​New student registration

The Surrey School District is pleased to welcome all new students to our schools. In-person registration is required at the neighbourhood school or school of choice (if space is available). The following documents are required at the school when registering: 

1. Proof of birth date for the student (birth certificate or passport).

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:

     a. Three pieces of identification showing the address of residence (purchase or rental agreement, utility bill, driver’s license, etc.)

     b. One of the three pieces above must be government issued in order to complete the registration process (BC driver’s license, BC Services Card, BCID or BC Care Card of parent/legal guardian).

Documents which are helpful, but not required:

  • Health documents (care card, immunization records, medical condition information);

  • Educational background (report cards).

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 registering.  We welcome all new students and we are pleased to assist in any way we can.

If you don't know the nearest school to you, visit the Locate a School page.

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
