Sistema Toronto aims to accept 50 new students each year, pending availability of funding.

Registration opens each April for the following school year. Parents will receive information about registration through their child’s school and will be invited to apply online (paper forms are available upon request). Returning students are required to renew their enrollment, but do not need to reapply.

Students are accepted to Sistema Toronto based on recommendation by school principals and random lottery. School principals identify families most in need, and a witnessed lottery takes place to fill remaining spaces. Students not accepted into the program are placed on a waiting list in lottery order and accepted as space becomes available.

Though we would love to accept all applicants to our program, space is limited and we have waiting lists at all three of our centres.

Registration is now closed. Please check back in April 2019 to apply for the 2019/20 school year.
