Registration and Course Selection

Thank you for choosing STA as your school for next year!  Please, review the instructions below that apply to you.​


Current STA Students & LDCSB Grade 8's

Beginning in February​, STA students and feeder school grade 8's will be selecting courses for the next school year. Courses are selected using Career Cruising, which is an online course selection process for LDCSB students. All students are required to "lock in" their courses by February 22nd. Once courses are selected and "locked in", a sign-off sheet must be printed, signed by a parent/guardian, and returned to the student's school accompanied by the student fee for the new school year.​

Note: It is imperative that students and their parents consider the initial course selection held in February with great care. Any changes instituted by students or their parents after this initial selection will not be guaranteed.


Students New to LDCSB

​​​​​For non-LDCSB students wishing to register at STA for the next school year, registration packages will be available at our Grade 8 night on Thursday, January 19, 2017. After this date you must contact the Guidance Centre at ext. 24040 and arrange to pick up a registration package.  All packages are due to the Guidance Centre by February 17, 2017. Registration is dependent upon the submission of a complete registration package, with all required documentation, and potentially an interview with the Vice-Principal. Anyone wishing to register after February 17 will be allowed to do so on an individual basis subject to the availability of courses.

Students not registered at an STA feeder school are invited to attend the Grade 8 Orientation day at St. Thomas Aquinas on January 27, 2017 from 9:45 - 2:00pm.  If you are interested in participating in this fun-filled and informative day, please download the Grade 8 Orientation Visit Permission 2017 and submit it to the Guidance Office at STA by January 20, 2017.  We look forward to seeing you there!
