Registration Information

Carlyle Elementary School

All new registrations for Elementary Students take place at our school in early February. The applications for the certificate of eligibility will be done at the same time.

Caryle registers new students throughout the school year, however, acceptance depends on classroom availability and whether the student lives within the school's boundaries. 

If you have a Certificate of Eligibility

Please consult the documents below to learn more about the registration process. 

Please bring the following documents with you to the school: 

  • The Certificate of Eligibility or permanent code of the child, parent, or sibling whose eligibility is being used.

    If you do not have a Certificate of Eligibility

    In order to qualify for English Instruction in Quebec Public Schools, students must meet certain eligibility criteria under the Charter of the French Language as set out by the Quebec government.

    What is a Certificate of Eligibility?

    To obtain a Certificate of Eligibility, parents must complete an application at the Community Services (Law 101) office located at the English Montreal School Board head office.

    Each elementary school within the EMSB serves the community within it's boundaries. Children living within these boundaries and their siblings have priority over children living outside of the school boundaries when registering at the school. Students living outside of the school boundaries are not eligible for bussing.
