Shared Student Registrations

High school students registered at another Elk Island Public School may not be able to take all the courses they want, due to schedule conflicts or if the courses are not available at the school they are registered at. We offer these students the ability to take the courses they otherwise would not be able to receive at their home school, while remaining enrolled at their regular school. This is known as Shared Student Registration.

Shared Student registrations require the knowledge and cooperation of the school the student is registered at. In order to register at Next Step as a Shared student, students need to: 

  1. Talk to your Counselor or an Administrator at your primary school to determine if the desired courses will fit with your educational program. Once this meeting taken place the counselor or administrator will forward a referral form to Next Step and registration can proceed.
  2. Register in person at Next Step by phoning to arrange an intake appointment.
