A Vision for Catholic Education

Catholic Schools have a unique mission rooted in Christ and the teachings of His Church.

Public funding allows us to do this well.

Home + School + Parish together educate the whole child forming a circle of support and a strong foundation for life.

 

Home + As your child’s first teacher you create the foundation for learning

School + A Catholic school’s unique role is to build upon that foundation of faith

Parish + This partnership completes the circle of support for your child and family

 

Highlights from the 2017-2021 Term

  • Advocated for Ward 73: Replacement School Ben Calf Robe-St. Clare (K-9) & 5 playgrounds!
  • Initiated Community Engagement Committee: Rebuilt Board relationships and reputation
  • Championed as a Board for new Schools to be built: 4 including a North End High School
