Our Faith

Students embrace the Catholic Church's renewed efforts to meet the spiritual needs of today's society, as witnesses to the Gospel values in their everyday lives.

Yes, Catholic schools are different. Each student in our Catholic learning community embodies excellence and equity by embracing the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations - to be:

  • A discerning believer;
  • An effective communicator;
  • A reflective, creative and holistic thinker;
  • A self-directed, responsible lifelong learner;
  • A collaborative contributor;
  • A caring family member; and
  • A responsible citizen.

People choose Catholic schools as an extension of their families. They want the values taught at home to be witnessed and lived at school. This is precisely what we offer in a Catholic school community.

Family of schools

Our school community is made up of students from the following elementary schools associated with our family of schools:

We also welcome Extended French and French Immersion students from the following schools;
