  • One of the child’s parents must be Catholic.
  • Consideration may be given to the admission of a pupil baptised in a religious denomination whose baptism is recognized by the Catholic Church, such as:
  • Apostolic Assyrian Church

At the secondary school level, parents may opt to register their child, or an adult student may register in a Catholic school even if a public school is available on the territory.

The Conseil scolaire catholique MonAvenir will consider an admission providing:

  • The parents or the adult student is a resident pursuant to subsection 36 (4) of the Education Act;
  • The Catholic character of the school is recognized and accepted;
  • The student participates in the school’s pastoral activities as well as in religion courses for completion of the OHSD. Parents fill out the Consent and Commitment Form ÉLV.1.1.3 (in French only) (PDF not accessible) and the adult student fills out the Adult Student Consent Form ÉLV.1.1.4 (in French only) (PDF not accessible).

The following have the right to have their children educated in French at the elementary and secondary school levels in Ontario:

  • Canadian citizens residing in Ontario whose first language learned and still understood is French; OR
  • Canadian citizens residing in Ontario who received their elementary-level education in French, here or elsewhere in Canada; OR
  • Canadian citizens who have a child who received, or who is receiving, his or her education in French language school at the elementary or secondary level, here or elsewhere in Canada.

If one of the parents meets any of the above criteria, that parent and his or her children is recognized as a francophone with section 23 French-language education rights.

If neither parent meets these conditions, an admissions committee may determine the child’s eligibility.

For all admissions, the Csc MonAvenir expects the following of the parents:

  • commitment to the mandate of our schools;
  • proof of being a separate school supporter;
  • an understanding of the targetted ideal: language proficiency to communicate, to learn and to affirm oneself culturally.

To learn more about the Csc MonAvenir admission criteria, please consult the policy and administrative directive on school admissions:

To summarize:

  • Families who qualify as French-language education rights holders and are Catholic: automatic admission
  • Families who qualify as French-language rights holders but are non-Catholic: possible admission with a commitment from them to recognize and respect the Catholic character of the school
  • Families who do not qualify as French-language education rights holders*, but who meet the Catholicity and residence criteria: possible admission by the Admissions Committee*.

*Families who do not meet any of the criteria defined in section 23 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms


  • French-language newcomers, whose children do or do not speak French
  • Families whose grandparents are French-language education rights holders
  • Francophile families

The board may admit into its schools children of parents who do not meet the criteria or who do not qualify as rights holders under section 23 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. An admissions committee will receive the application from the parents and will meet with them and their children for the purpose of making a recommendation to the Csc MonAvenir. The Csc MonAvenir takes into consideration the well-being of the child as well as the mission of the school. The meeting will help determine, for instance:

  • if the child’s proficiency in French will enable the child to integrate satisfactorily into a French-language school;
  • if the parents’ language proficiency is appropriate to support the child’s learning at the French-language school;
  • the level of French usage in the home;
  • the strategies being considered to support the child’s learning.

The board will give special consideration to the following:

  • families whose grandparents are section 23 rights holders, to enable them to regain the right they lost for socio-historical reasons;
  • francophile families who have shown an interest in and commitment to the French language even if it is not their first language (by taking French courses or registering their child for French-language daycare, for example);
  • francophone newcomers, who must go through the admissions committee process for admission because they do not hold Canadian citizenship. For these families, the procedure is accelerated. The assessment of the language proficiency and school performance of these children will make it possible to offer them the resources they need to progress at the level of their oral communication and/or academic performance if, for a number of reasons, their studies or their learning of French have held them back.

Secondary schools

Admission in our secondary schools is automatic for students whose parents are French-language education right holders. Strong French Immersion students are welcome to apply. Students whose parents are not right holders will have their application reviewed by an Admission Committee.
