Dear Parents/Guardians of Grade 9 Students:
Your son/daughter will soon be embarking on the next exciting stage in his/her educational journey. We are looking forward to welcoming these new students to Catholic Central High School (CCHS), and being part of their academic, spiritual, and social growth. To help ease the transition from junior high to high school, and to ensure that you have all the information necessary to assist your child in making decisions, we invite you to one of two in-person Information Evenings at Catholic Central High School:
- Tuesday, February 7 at 7:00 p.m. on Campus East in the Cafeteria
- Wednesday, February 8 at 7:00 p.m. on Campus West in the Gathering Space
Following these information evenings, Catholic Central administrative and guidance/ academic counseling teams, in addition to our Grad Coach and First Nations, Metis, and Inuit Worker will be visiting the feeder schools during the week of February 13-16. We will be at St. Francis (February 13), FLVT (February 15), St. Catherines (February 14), and St. Josephs (February 16 ). Students will have program handbooks and a copy of their course selection sheets to bring home to you for approval. Please have all course selection sheets submitted back to your child’s school no later than Friday, March 10, 2023.
In terms of how to register your child to attend CCHS, current Holy Spirit students will be completing a registration update (“re-registration”) form online. Students from our feeder schools (of which your child’s current school is one) will need to indicate the designated school as CCHS. The division is targeting January 16-30, 2023 for the re-registration forms to be emailed out to parents/ guardians.. Any students new to the division will need to wait until after February 1st to register. Please note that course selections for CCHS cannot be completed until the registration update form has been submitted online.
While we hope that the parent information evenings, access to the presentation (on our website), and facilitated course selection sessions with your child should provide you and your child with the information you need to transition to high school, we recognize that this can be daunting. We are here to support and guide you through this in any way we can.
At CCHS, we believe that a culture of Rigor, Relevance and Relationships is essential to ensuring the success of all students. We look forward to welcoming you and your child into our community.
