Register for an OCSB school

The Ottawa Catholic School Board welcomes families of all faiths. Our schools offer innovative programming; engaging learning spaces and dedicated educators.

If your child is returning to their current school in September you do not have to re-register them, they will be automatically re-enroled.

How to register



Your child will be registered for the 2020-2021 school year after you complete our registration form. When schools reopen, we will contact you to make an appointment to verify original copies of your required documents.


If you have questions, contact or call 613-228-3338.


Call our Family Welcome Centre to make a registration appointment. Our staff will help you with the entire registration process. 613-233-5670.

Welcome families of all faiths

Children who are baptized Catholic or have a parent that is baptized are automatically eligible to attend one of our schools. Students of all other faiths are also eligible as long as we have space in the school. At this time, all of our schools have space to welcome non-Catholic children.
