School Registration

EICS offers a number of programs for prospective students.
Registration for the 2019-2020 School Year opens up on Tuesday, January 22nd, at 6:00 p.m.

Students in grades 1 to 12 are welcome to register for their designated schools for the 2019-2020 school year beginning January 22, 2019.  Please know that as per the changes in the March 2018 Sherwood Park Reconfiguration, parents in the Sherwood Park area should check the Boundary Maps prior to registering so as you are registering for your zoned school, as boundary exemptions will not be granted for the 2019-2020 school year. 

Click here to review the boundary maps for each of the schools.

If you have any questions, please contact the school in question or Inclusive Learning Services at  780-467-8896 to discuss registering your child with Elk Island Catholic Schools.

Registering a Student when you are new or returning to the District

If you do not currently have a student in the District, you will be unable to log into PowerSchool but the SchoolEngage portal is will enable you to register students who are new or returning to EICS.

  1. Go to
  2. If you have not yet created an account, click "Create new account?" to create a new account
  3. To finish creating a new account, enter the required information and click "Register"
    • Note: A valid email address will be required to complete the sign up procedure
  4. Once you have registered, log into SchoolEngage and click the "Add Student" button to add a new student, then fill in their information.
    • Important - all fields other than the ASN are required.  The school will fill the ASN itself after registration is complete.
  5. f you are registering a new student (one who has never existed in the division) or a student who has been previously registered with EICS, you will choose the form "Grade 1-12 Registration Form". 

    In both cases, please fill out the form and submit it to the school you wish to register in.  The school will then typically follow up within two weeks (or after returning if submitted during the summer season).  



Notice of Religious Permeation

Effective September 1, 2010, Section 11.1 of the Alberta Human Rights Act requires school boards to provide notice to a parent or guardian of a student when educational programs include subject matter that deals primarily and explicitly with religion, sexuality, or sexual orientation.  

As a Catholic school division, EICS fully permeates Catholic theology, philosophy, practices and beliefs, the principles of the Gospel and the teachings of the Catholic Church in all aspects of school life.  EICS must, therefore, include this notice on all registration forms. 

Already a Student at EICS - Data Verification Process

If your child is already a student with EICS a registration form is not required each year.  Instead:

  • You are required to submit a Data Verification Sheet which will confirm the details of the registration form each year (we are required to have this form on file by Alberta Education each year)
  • If your child is moving to a new grade in the same school he or she will be automatically registered
  • If your child is transitioning between elementary, middle, junior high and high school, he or she will automatically be registered in the appropriate school according to the EICS boundaries

Please contact Inclusive Learning Services at 780-467-8896 if you have questions about the transition process.

Registering a Student using your existing PowerSchool Account

If you already have access to PowerSchool with EICS (e.g. because a sibling of the student is already attending a school in our district) you can log into PowerSchool and register a new student using the following steps:

  1. Log into (contact your school if you do not know your Parent Portal Login Information).
  2. Click "SchoolEngage Student Forms"
  3. From the menu to the left, choose the icon to Add Student, then fill out the student's information
    • Important - all fields other than the ASN are required.  The school will fill the ASN itself after registration is complete.
  4. Click the Graduation Hat icon and click on the student you just created to see a list of available forms
  5. Click "New" beside the registration form that is relevant for the year you are registering

To complete the form successfully you'll also need to ensure that you have a copy of the child's citizenship documentation (e.g. Canadian Birth Certificate, Permanent Residence Card, Student Study Permit, etc.).  For students who are not Canadian citizens, we are also required to maintain parent documentation on file (e.g. Permanent Residence Card, Work Permit, etc.)

Once your child is registered with the district they will automatically be added to your PowerSchool account.
