Where is my Catholic School?
The Division has 21 schools including one non-traditional school (an outreach school in Red Deer) and an online learning program in our high schools. Our schools are located in Red Deer (14), Blackfalds (1), Sylvan Lake (2), Rocky Mountain House (2), Innisfail (1) and Olds (1). Students from surrounding areas are bused to our schools.
Catchment School: A school that offers regular programming as close to the student's home as possible. As student growth in some areas may exceed the capacity of local schools, it may be necessary to direct students to attend another school. Students residing within the catchment boundary are expected to attend that school.
School of Choice: The school division offers parents the opportunity to select a Program of Choice for their child's education. If parents elect to enroll their child in a Program of Choice which is not their catchment school, and they reside less than 2.4 km from their catchment school, they will be responsible for transporting their child to and from school or paying a transportation fee. An Out of Boundary form is not required to attend a School of Choice.
Out of Catchment Request: If parents elect to enroll their child in a school outside their catchment and not considered a School of Choice, an Out of Catchment Request is required. Please use the appropriate form below to request your child's enrolment at a school outside of your current catchment area. Please note that parents need to fill out one form for each request. If approved, parents will be responsible for transporting their child to and from school and transportation fees will apply if busing is available.
If you are unsure of the school your child should attend, please contact us to discuss your options. Some catchment schools may be considered a School of Choice. Please contact your child's school if Transportation Fees apply.
