New Kindergarten - Grade 12 Students

2020-2021 K-12 Registration

We are now accepting new registrations for the 2020-2021 school year.

You do not need to fill out a registration form if your child is already a student with NLPS. If you are transferring to a different school within NLPS, please contact your current school to have your information transferred to the new school.

If you are new to Northern Lights Public Schools (no other children currently enrolled in one of our schools), please register using School Engage.

We recommend using a computer (desktop or laptop) to complete forms in School Engage. Forms can also be completed on a tablet, but are not mobile friendly and we do not recommend using a smartphone to complete forms.

Detailed instruction for registering through School Engage are included in our School Engage Parent Registration User Guide.

If you have children enrolled in an NLPS school and need to enroll a child that is currently not enrolled (ie a new kindergarten student), please sign in to your PowerSchool Parent Portal account to register them using School Engage. 

You will need to access the Parent Portal using a computer (desktop or laptop) in order to access registration forms. You will not be able to access the forms using the Parent Portal app.

If you have not already created your Parent Portal account, please follow the instructions on our Parent Portal page or Download the instructions as a PDF. Detailed instructions for registering through School Engage are included in our Parent Registration User Guide for Existing Parents.

Once you have accessed School Engage, please select the 2020-2021 K-12 Registration Form, fill everything out, and submit the form. If you require assistance with filling out the form, please contact the school. 

For tips on completing your registration form, please see the Tips for Completing Your Student Registration in School Engage page.

  • Note: Please ensure you are filling out the form for the correct year. We often have registration for the current year running at the same time as registration for the upcoming school year. If you fill out the form for the incorrect year, you will be asked to log back in and fill out the correct form.

High School Students that are new to Northern Lights Public Schools should register online but must also make arrangements to meet with the school's guidance counsellor or principal to do their course selection and complete the registration process.

Your child’s proof of age and legal name (birth certificate or passport) and proof of your address are required to register your child. If we do not receive documentation, we may not receive funding from Alberta Education for your child. The online registration form will allow you to upload that information (a photo or scan of the document is acceptable). If you experience difficulty in uploading the documentation, please bring it into your school and our administrative assistants will be happy to scan it and add it to your registration information.
