Registrations will be accepted for all students living in our catchment area.
As many of our students come to us from out of area, we follow CBE procedures with regards to out of area registrations.
We do not do a promotional open house at Belfast. We find that most of our student registrations that come to us from out of area choose our program for our Arts Centered Learning focus or have older siblings that have attended Belfast in the past.
Students applying from out of area will be accepted based on programming and in consultation with their designated school. We will accept packages for out of area students but will not confirm registration until CBE processes have been followed. Should we be in a position of having more registrations than we can accomodate we will follow a lottery process to determine placements. Information about the CBE's lottery process can be found HERE. For this reason we will be unable to confirm registrations for out of area students until February 15th.
To determine where your designated school is please refer to the CBE Find a School tool.
Registration for Kindergarten - Grade 6 starts January 9th.
Kindergarten Registration for kindergarten students will start at 7:30. All registrations will be processed in the order that their completed package is received and assign a number. The purpose of numbering applications is to prioritize family preferences for morning or afternoon registrations. Please note, early registration does not guarantee acceptance for out of area students.
A kindergarten orientation night will be held May 25th from 6-7 pm. During this time we will discuss the kindergarten program as well as things parents can do to help prepare their child for the first day of school.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call us at the school 403.777.6250.
