Public school parents line up to register for Brampton Catholic high school

CityNews | posted Wednesday, Mar 22nd, 2017


Parents whose children have previously attended public school are lining up to register their children for a Catholic high school in Brampton.

They’ve been waiting outside Cardinal Ambrozic Catholic Secondary School on a cold Tuesday night for Wednesday’s registration to begin.

This is not an unusual circumstance, Bruce E. Campbell, a spokesman for the Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board, told CityNews on Tuesday. In the past, parents have begun lining up as early as 3 a.m. This year, the lineup began the night before. It also happens at other schools.

The students must live in the catchment area of Cardinal Ambrozic and the lineup happens every year. The school gives priority to Grade 9 students from the Catholic elementary feeder schools. After that, there are approximately 85 spaces available for open access students or those looking to attend from other school boards, Campbell said.

Enrolment is capped at 320 students per grade.

Campbell said that there is a perception that the school “is a good place to learn, is very safe, maintains good discipline, and performs well. Also, parents have commented on ‘liking’ uniforms.”
