As a community of believers created in the image of God, we inspire
and nurture strong communities of faith.
Our Religious and Family Life Education programs impart the knowledge of
our faith through scripture, story, and tradition. The Assembly of Catholic Bishops of Ontario,
through the Institute for Catholic Education, provide curriculum policy
documents which identify the expectations for each grade and describes the
knowledge and skills that students are expected to demonstrate. Prayer, liturgy and the celebration of the
sacraments are opportunities to demonstrate our thankful awareness of God’s
presence in the world.
“Religious Education in
Catholic schools complements family and parish-based catechesis.” (General Directory for Catechesis, 1997) The
collaboration of caring adults in the school, the home, and the parish supports
students as they grow to become discerning believers and responsible citizens
formed in Catholic traditions.
Our Catholic faith is made visible in all subject areas through the
infusion of Catholic Social Teachings, virtues and gospel values into daily
learning experiences. The Ontario
Catholic School Graduate Expectations guide the learning journey for all

We accept the call to be imitators of Christ by embracing the Beatitudes through authentic witness at the school, community, and global levels. Rooted in our commitment to transmit our Faith and Catholic tradition, we are inspired to build communities dedicated to the formation of young people who recognize their gifts and responsibilities to contribute to the transformation of the world into a more just and loving society for all.
We believe that each student, made in the image and likeness of God and being hope for the future, can be engaged in their learning and achieve at high levels with appropriate supports. We are committed to ensuring that the potential of each student is realized through the achievement of ambitious outcomes and improving in their learning to the highest possible level.
We embrace our responsibilities for the prudent and judicious use of the resources we have been allocated. In our context, we are committed to the development and growth of all employees, responsible and accountable practices and our call to care for all of God's creation.
