2023/2024 Registration Information


Stratford School is full in planned classes from Kindergarten to Grade 9 in the Cogito program. If you are registering for Kindergarten or if you are new to Edmonton Public Schools, you must register online.

Families interested in attending the Cogito Program at Stratford School are encouraged to read the information on the Alternative Programs page under the "Programs" tab.


If your child is new to Edmonton Public Schools, you can register for school online using any device that you use to access the internet. Visit the Division website to learn how to register for school.

If your child is currently attending an Edmonton Public School, please wait until pre-enrolment is available on March 6, 2023 on SchoolZone.

Please register online to support our health and safety measures.  Due to COVID-19 we would prefer no paper registration forms (as per AHS Protocol, the documents will not be processed for 72 hours if the documents are dropped off at the school).  

For parents who select Stratford School from another Edmonton Public School in SchoolZone and for parents new to Edmonton Public applying for Grade's 1 to 9, please send in your child's most recent report card to stratford@epsb.ca as part of the registration process.

Parents will also need to upload documents (please see Examples of Accepted Documentation for All Registrations for a list of acceptable documents) that help us confirm their child’s legal name, citizenship, birth date and home address using the online registration form.

Following the close of pre-enrolment at 4:00 p.m. on April 14, 2023, should there be more Cogito applications than there is space, the school will follow a random selection process.

Once you have submitted a completed and signed digital registration form, you will receive an email confirming the form has been submitted.  The school will not be calling you unless they need some supporting documentation for the registration.

  • Canadian provincial birth certificate

Returning Cogito student registration

Families of returning Cogito students are encouraged to pre-enrol through SchoolZone before April 14, 2023, for the upcoming school year. 

Sign in to SchoolZone between 9 a.m. on March 6 and 4 p.m. on April 14, 2023 to select your child’s preferred school for the 2023-24 school year. 

When you sign in to your parent SchoolZone account on your computer, tablet or smartphone:

  • Follow the instructions to select your child’s preferred school for next year


Once you have submitted your completed student registration form and supporting documents, we will review all of the documents. This does not mean your child has been enrolled at the school.  Parents will be notified by phone as to if there child was successfully or not successful in the random electronic draw process by April 28, 2023.

We will contact you if we need clarification about any of the documents you submit.
