The 2018-19 school year is just around the corner – and registering to attend one of Waterloo Region’s 45 Catholic elementary schools and five Catholic secondary schools has never been easier. In fact, a quality, inclusive, faith-based education is now just a click away thanks to the Waterloo Catholic District School Board’s Online Registration system.

As a provincial leader in 21st century teaching and learning, we know the huge role technology plays in the lives of everyone. So it only makes sense to use technology to make our schools even more accessible to the community. We believe registering a child for school should be as simple and convenient as possible, and we hope our online school registration option will help more people than ever experience the difference of a Catholic education.”
