Programs of Choice

Exploring Program of Choice Options at Surrey School District

Surrey School District provides a variety of programs across several schools. Applicants can enter through district lottery or the school's application process. The district lottery options include Early French Immersion, Intensive Fine Arts, Montessori, Outdoor and Traditional Programs.

We strongly recommend that anyone interested in applying for a Program of Choice attend the information meeting hosted by each school. Once scheduled, the dates and times for these sessions will be distributed across the district, and posted on the Program Information Meetings tab.
