Calgary Board of Education

Enrolling your child

Our school strives to provide the best possible education for all students. We serve a student population that comes from the local communities in the school's catchment area, including:

  • St. Andrew's Heights

  • University Heights

  • Varsity Courts

  • Parkdale

  • Point McKay

  • West Hillhurst (west of Crowchild)

We are also able to welcome some students from out of our catchment area each year depending on available space. While we are closely connected to the communities surrounding the school, our close proximity to the Foothills Medical Centre and University of Calgary make the school a popular choice for families with parents who work at one of these locations.

University School has a longstanding history of being an innovative school that offers its students a well-rounded, academically-oriented program that places an emphasis on the arts as well as the use of technology.

Before enrolling your child, we encourage you to make an appointment to learn more about what University School uniquely offers its students. Because of the significant increase in registrations for children who reside outside the school's attendance boundary, these students will be placed on a contact list. Enrollment decisions are made in May of each year, pending space availability.

Parents of children who are new to Canada, or who are not Canadian Citizens and who have not already attended a Calgary Board of Education school should read the system registration information Welcome | Information for Non-Canadian Students and Newcomers.

When enrolling at the school you will need to bring a copy of your child’s birth certificate, immunization records, proof of address and last report card. To save time when you visit the school, you may complete the Student Registration Form in advance and bring it with you. It would also be helpful to provide the name, mailing address and phone number of your child's previous school.

Please contact our main office at 403-777-6240 to book an appointment or to pick up a registration package.
