My kids are in primary and secondary (Years 4, 5, and 7). I would like to know the documents required to enroll them in school in Ontario.

Particularly, is a transcript issued from their last school required, or will copies of report cards suffice?

Will they need to take entrance exams?

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and questions with us.

You can find some detailed information in our Settlement.Org How do I enrol my child in school? article.

Regarding your additional questions, here is an excerpt from that article,

In some school boards, newcomer students go to an assessment or reception centre where their mathematics and English language skills are tested. Read more in How is my child assessed to start school in Ontario?

Find a list of school reception centres in Ontario.

If you have your child's previous report card or textbook, or any other school information that might be helpful, bring it to the centre.


You can find some additional information in our Settlement.Org How is my child assessed to start school in Ontario? article.

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.
