SIDES students include both school-age and adults who want to graduate or to upgrade courses. SIDES also welcomes students in Grades 9-12 who attend a neighbourhood school but want to supplement with online courses.

Registration is now closed for Kindergarten to Grade 8 and Full-Time Grade 9 students for the 2023-2024 school year. Registration will open mid-May for the 2024-2025 school year.
