1. How do I enroll in a K-12 school in Newfoundland and Labrador?

1. You must apply directly to the School District in which you wish to study.

2. You must be accepted in a program of study by a recognized secondary school and receive a Letter of Acceptance (required to apply for a study permit).

3. If your program of study is longer than 6 months in duration, you must apply for and be granted a study permit (and temporary resident visa if required) from Canadian immigration authorities. In most cases, you will have to include a medical examination with your application. For more information: www.cic.gc.ca/english/study/study.asp opens new window.

Please note: minor children who come to Canada to study and who are not accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, must be cared for by a responsible adult in Canada. This person is known as a custodian. Legal arrangements must be made to give the custodian permission to act in place of a parent.
