2015-2016 Registration Process

If you are looking to register at Lisgar Collegiate Institute for the 2015-2016 school year please follow the steps below.

Find out if Lisgar Collegiate Institute is your designated home school by using the OCDSB School Locator or by calling the OCDSB Boundary Information Line at (613) 596‐8780. For any students coming from a country where the primary language of instruction is not English, students must first be assessed by the OCDSB Family Reception Centre. Appointments may be made by calling (613) 239-2416.

If Lisgar is your designated home school, you must contact the school to book a registration appointment. Please arrive at your registration appointment with the following documents:

  • Proof of address (property tax bill, assessment notice, purchase of sale agreement, or rental agreement)
  • A minimum of one other form of identification that includes the address and the guardian’s name (which may include the previous list as well as utility bills, driver’s license, etc.)
  • Copy of Canadian Birth Certificate, Passport, or Permanent Resident documentation.
  • Most recent report card
  • Most recent transcript showing all completed secondary school courses
  • Individual Education Plan, if applicable
  • Academic or Psychological Assessments, if applicable
  • Vaccination records (for any students coming from outside of Ottawa)

If you have been formally identified as a gifted learner by an Identification, Placement & Review Committee (IPRC) within the OCDSB and your designated home school through the OCDSB School Locator is either: Cairine Wilson SS, Canterbury HS, Colonel By SS, Glebe CI, Gloucester HS, Hillcrest HS, Lisgar CI, Nepean HS, Osgoode Township HS, Rideau HS, Ridgemont HS, Sir Wilfrid Laurier SS, or Woodroffe HS - Lisgar Collegiate Institute becomes the home school for gifted learners.

If you have not been formally identified as a gifted learner by an Identification, Placement & Review Committee (IPRC) within the OCDSB please provide the results of a recent cognitive abilities test (ex. Canadian Cognitive Abilities Test (CCAT), Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children (WISC‐IV)) for evaluation by the Special Education Department at Lisgar. Please note: these tests must be completed at your elementary school or by an Ontario psychologist and have been administered within the past two years.Once these documents have been reviewed, a member of the Special Education Department will contact you regarding the next steps for registration.

If Lisgar is not your designated home school, you must apply for a Secondary Student Transfer. Secondary Student Transfers occur each year in February. For more information about the OCDSB Transfer Process, visit OCDSB Secondary Student Transfer Information Page. (01/06/2015)
