Your Academic Success Starts Here

The Surrey School District is pleased to welcome new students to our schools. To start the student registration process, parents need to fill out and submit an on-line registration application which can be found by clicking This Registration Link. Please attach/upload all required documentation when you fill out the on-line registration. In-person registration at the neighbourhood school in not required.  

If the Student is a Refugee Claimant, or a Temporary Resident where the parent holds a temporary Study, Work, Diplomatic, or Minister/Religious Permit the school will forward your registration to the Funding Eligible Branch of the Welcome Centre. Parents may be asked to submit additional documentation to determine if their child is funding eligible according to the Ministry of Education's guidelines. Once your application has been approved, you will be issued an official Letter of Acceptance (LOA) which is required prior to the student being enrolled at their school. This process is explained in this document and further outlined below.

(please refer to information below for additional details and Quick Links).
