How to Apply

  1. Beginning Monday, January 13, 2020 parents will register their child/children at their local catchment school prior to applying for a Choice Program seat.
  2. Online applications open Monday, January 27, 2020 @ 8:00 am - parents apply by entering their details, their child's details (one application per child), choose their preferred top three program/school choices and submit their application by the deadline of February 17, 2020 @ midnight.
  3. Once the online applications have closed, a random lottery draw begins on February 24, 2020.
  4. An e-mail communication to all applicants - whether or not the result of the lottery is successful for their child - is sent out between the weeks of February 24 to March 13, 2020. Successful applicants will be placed at a Choice Programs school. (There is no need to re-register at the choice school; your registration package will be forwarded.)  All other applicants are placed on a waitlist.
  5. Program seats are filled until all available places have been allocated. Applicants that have been waitlisted may remain on the waitlist until if/when they are offered a place.
  6. If a student drops out of a program either before it has started or during the program, the applicant who is next on the waitlist for that place is contacted.
  7. Make sure you have everything you need before applying by consulting our online application checklist. You can also read parent's frequently asked questions.
