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

Registration is not yet open for the 2020-21 school year. Please check back for more information in the coming months.

New applications and renewals can be submitted at

Please note the requirements for new applicants: 

1. Must attend Parkdale Junior and Senior Public School, Yorkwoods Public School, or St. Martin de Porres Catholic School for the 2019/2020 school year.

2. Must currently be enrolled in Senior Kindergarten, Grade 1 or Grade 2.

New students are accepted to Sistema Toronto based on recommendation by school principals and by 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.
