Education for Children

Education For Children2The Kindergarten to Grade 12 (K-12) system offers free access to all families with school-age children. All children from 6-16 are required by law to attend school. Subjects are taught in English with French being offered in certain areas.

While the majority of schools within the K-12 system are public, there are some private schools in the province. In this province, most children usually attend a school that is closest to their home. To register your child, you can call or visit the school. If you don't know which school is closest, you can check with the school board in your area.

Newfoundland and Labrador is broken into five geographic districts, Labrador, Western, Nova Central, Eastern, and Conseil Scolaire Francophone (province-wide French school board).
