Common Problems with registration packages: 

  • Missing report card.  Yale will not contact prior schools for report cards, that is the responsibility of the parent.
  • Missing proof of address documents.  One is required from each of the two sections.  2 documents from one section is not acceptable.  If there is a problem supplying these, please let us know the reason in an email.
  • Course Planning.  Student course requests should be submitted with the registration package.  Changes can be made after consultation with counsellors if need be. Please see the course planning tab on this website, under "Students" > "Student Information" drop down menu > "Course Planning".
  • In District - Non-catchment forms must be signed by the catchment Principal.  No exceptions.  Even if you have never attended that school.


If you have not submitted your registration package before the week prior to school starting, your child will likely not be able to attend school the first week back in September.
