Hi,

we are moving to Canada during 3rd week of November 2014. We have PR status.

My children aged 7+ and 12 has to be enrolled in grade 2 & 7 respectively.

Since the school started in September, will that be an issue for them as they will be enrolling in the middle of the school year?

Are there any extra classes for those missed ones? Kindly advice.

We could not get this specific information from other related websites.

Many thanks in advance.

Hello,

Thanks for sharing your question with us. It is great that you are looking into this type of information before your arrival.

According to one of our Education Experts, it is possible to start school in the middle of the school year or semester.

Students can start school at any time but starting in the middle of the school year or semester might make it difficult to get credits for the courses he or she is studying. In terms of credits, they generally apply more to higher grades like middle or high school grades.

Again, it is possible to start school in the middle of the school year or semester.

Since your children are in elementary school, in terms of extra work or homework, it may be something that you may want to discuss with your children's teachers once they are enrolled and begin attending school. It may help to have a discussion with them to find out if and what is needed for your children to catch up.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
