OUTSIDE OUR BOUNDARY

If you live outside our school boundary (please visit www.hcdsb.org to view STA’s area map) you must complete a Cross Boundary Form. These can be picked up from your home school. Fill out the form and return to your homeschool to be sent out for approval. Only until approval has been granted to attend STA will you be given a registration package to complete.

If you have been accepted into our IB program and you live outside our boundary, you will not have to complete a Cross Boundary form. You are automatically granted approval. However, if you choose not to continue in the IB program and live outside our boundary you will be asked to return to your local high school within your area.
