Program of Choice Information & Expression of Interest Form


Expression of Interest for Program of Choice

  • Schooling Information

  • This expression of interest form is for those students requesting a Program of Choice in September. Expressions of Interest will be processed in the order they are received, considering all first choices before we consider second choices. Please note that this is an expression of interest for the programs of choice in Comox Valley Schools, and this is not confirmation of registration.

    The indicated school of choice will contact you and provide information about being accepted or waitlisted. Follow their directions on how to register your child for Kindergarten.
  • While your preferred choice may fill up and start a waitlist, you have the option of selecting a second in the event your first choice cannot be accommodated. If your second choice is the Neighbourhood program, you will need to register via that process separately, click here for more information.
