Teenagers enrolled in London Catholic schools will now get to pick their high school.
The London District Catholic School Board has changed its policy that dictates which high school elementary students will attend.
Starting February 1st, grade 8 students that reside in an area that feeds two or more secondary schools will be allowed to pick which school they go to.
Previously, students were forced to go to the one closest to their home, although some students could apply for an exemption.
Students in the Thames Valley District School Board already get to pick which high school they want to attend.
The move is a response to increased pressure from parents and falling enrolment.
